Nissan’s Infiniti brand will possibly finish 2016 with record purchases well beyond the 215,000 automobiles it sold globally last year, the company’s global chief informed.
Infiniti this week, stated global sales reached 20,050 cars in November, a boost of 5 percent from the very same period a year prior. Sales amounted to about 204,000 in January-November, rise of 6 percent.
“We don’t provide projections, but you can do the math and figure out we have a record year in the making,” Infiniti global head Roland Krueger informed.
Krueger informed Infiniti’s business worldwide is acquiring momentum chiefly from new models including the Q60 midsize sedan and QX30 compact crossover sport-utility vehicle (SUV).
“What we will see next year is the complete availability of models we released one-by-one in separate markets this year. It’s extremely important for us that we have a full portfolio readily available in all markets, which’s going to give us some chance (to grow car sales statistics),” Krueger stated.
Infiniti sold 12,112 automobiles in the United States in November, a 4 percent boost from the very same duration a year previously. For January-November, U.S. sales reached a little over 120,000 automobiles, an increase of 1 percent.
In China, the brand sold more than 4,000 automobiles in November, up 6 percent, with January-November sales increasing 3 percent to almost 37,000 automobiles.
Throughout the first 11 months of 2016, Infiniti also sold more than 15,200 automobiles in Western Europe, up 143 percent from the same duration in 2015. It associated the growth to the Q30 compact sedan and QX30 crossover SUV.
