We know it seems like this winter will never end (though, if you hang on for just a bit longer, we’re pretty sure that spring is right around the corner). February was another long, cold, snowy month for most of the country and, like January, it stalled much of the auto industry and deflated expectations across the board. Well, for most of the auto industry that is. Nissan rose above the rest and was one of the few automakers with positive sales numbers in the month of February.
Not only was Nissan in rare enough company by posting the greatest year-over-year gain in February, but they also managed a record-setting month with 105,631 vehicles sold. This marks a 16.7 percent increase over last February and was also good for the 11th monthly record set by the brand in the past 12 months.
Leading the Nissan sales was the redesigned Rogue crossover, which also set a February record with 17,197 units sold nationwide—a jump of 72.6 percent. Another record-setter was the zero-emissions Nissan LEAF, which had an increase of 118.2 percent with 1,425 sold.
Hopefully we have finally seen an end to the cold. Want to get a jump start on your spring? Head over to Bates Nissan and warm yourself up with a brand new Nissan.
