Nissan Motor India, a subsidiary of Japanese automaker Nissan, sold 3,711 units in the domestic market in December 2016, up 21 percent from 3,065 units it sold the same month a year ago.

For the first three quarters of fiscal year 2016, Nissan and Datsun’s combined sales recorded an impressive 50 percent growth rate.

Together their sales growth, as claimed by Nissan, is the second-fastest among car brands in India for April-December of the financial year 2016-17.

Nissan Motor India’s managing director Arun Malhotra, said, “Nissan India achieved healthy sales in December by posting 21 percent year-on-year growth despite the challenges of the demonetisation issue.”

This strong performance came on the back of continued success of Datsun redi-GO and the great customer response to the redi-GO SPORT, Malhotra added.
