Nissan is reporting decreased sales in September in the U.S., but units moved from the company’s plant in Canton did well.
Nissan’s U.S. sales in September totaled 86,868, down 5.5 percent from last year’s total of 91,907.
Nissan Division sales finished at 77,828 units, a decrease of 5.6 percent.
Sales of Infiniti vehicles totaled 9,040 units, down 4.3 percent.
In Mississippi-related highlights, Frontier sales jumped 7 percent in September to 4,662 units while NV sales increased, up 18.4 percent to 945 in September.
Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Sales and Marketing, Service and Parts, Nissan U.S.A., said: “September was a unique month with fewer selling days than the prior year with the Labor Day weekend falling into August sales reporting for the first time in several years. While this skewed year-to-year comparisons we are optimistic that strong auto sales will continue into the fourth quarter.”
