Nissan Group of India’s year-on-year sales indicated a healthy growth at 328% for the month of April in spite of tough market conditions and the fact that many others sales have shown a decline. The company sold 5,301 vehicles in April 2014 as against 1,239 vehicles in April 2013.
Its recently launched GO has the crucial factor in the change as the Datsun GO contributed over 50% to Nissan Group’s April 2014 sales with 2691 units. Ever since its launch the GO has done well and remember it managed to sell 2072 units within 10 days of its launch in India.
Mr. Kenichiro Yomura – President, Nissan Group of India said, “We are witnessing an encouraging growth in our sales. We ended FY-13 on a high and have begun the new financial year with a healthy 328% year-on-year growth for the month of April. Our focus is to continue this trend going forward.”
Nissan now plans to launch the facelifted Sunny midsize sedan in a few months time and also the Datsun GO + MPV will be the next launch after the GO. The Datsun GO is currently offered with a 1.2 petrol engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox with features like follow-me headlamps.
