Nissan November Sales Break Company Records

2016 Nissan Rogue

During the first few weeks of December, automakers release reports boosting their sales numbers for the previous month. Nissan November sales flaunt rather impressive numbers, with record-breaking growth pointing towards a successful year for the company. In total, Nissan saw a 4% gain over November 2014’s numbers.

The growth is attributed to record-breaking sales of 95,389 cars and trucks for the company in 2015 so far. The cause of this incredible success is none other than the Nissan Rogue, which has been outselling the Altima sedan, one of the company’s bestsellers, for a consecutive three month period, now.

As of the month of November, the Rogue has sold 22,565 units – a 50% increase over the compact crossover’s sales last year around the same time. The Altima itself saw sales decrease, but Nissan representatives attribute the falling numbers to the fact that the sedan is currently in a transitional period between previous-year and new-year models.

“The new Altima really didn’t play into November results because it is just now starting to arrive,” Dan Mohnke, Nissan’s US Vice President of Sales, says. Furthermore, he says, “But we have that to look forward to as the year ends—not just the new Altima, but also a freshened Sentra reaching dealers later this month, as well as the new Titan.”

 

The company’s optimism comes from the positive image painted by Nissan November sales numbers, which indicate continuous growth and success. With several new models on the horizon, sales are expected to increase even further. We are excited to see what this success brings to Nissan of Lake Charles!

Although the Nissan Altima had a major upgrade a few years ago, Nissan has updated more than just a few things on this refreshed 2016 Nissan Altima.  The Altima is one of Nissan’s more popular models and arguably the brands most popular sedan.  The pricing on this new Altima will reflect some of the changes made by increasing $200 from last year’s model, but when looking at the changes made, this increase is small compared to the changes made.

This year, the 2016 Nissan Altima is getting an exterior redesign, with updates to the front fascia, grille and fenders.  According to Nissan, the 2016 Altima will also incorporate the “Energetic Flow” design in place with the 2016 Maxima.  In addition to this, the interior will feature a softer material, updated steering and suspension and some new technology! With updates to the engine, the MPG is expected to be a class best with 39 MPG Highway.

The 2016 Nissan Altima is a great example of Nissan’s drive to improve its vehicles.  Although the Altima is Nissan’s “bread-and-butter,” the company stills looks for ways to improve an already flourishing model!  Tell us what you think of the Altima’s upgraded features here at Nissan of Lake Charles!  I know we are highly anticipating it’s arrival here at our store!

Nissan seeks to top the field with their re-touched 2016 Altima. It’s hard to imagine how Nissan can improve on the already top selling model, however, the company announced plans to make mid cycle changes and improvements to their 2016 midsize sedan.

“We’re going to do something significant for the Altima for the midcycle,” said Pierre Loing, Nissan North America’s vice president of product planning. Although Nissan will not disclose the specific changes planned, styling improvements and technology upgrades were assured to be part of the new 2016 Altima facelift.

Nissan must be doing something right! In the past two years, the Altima has gained momentous sales by selling 335,644 new cars in 2014, an increase of 5% compared to the previous year.  They outsold Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys in December of 2014 – which must be due to the base model’s NASA inspired seats, NissanConnect audio visual display, premium finishes, and improved fuel economy.

Come visit us at Nissan of Lake Charles, where we will be happy to show you why the Nissan Altima is one of the top selling cars in its class!
