The 2015 Nissan Sales Show the Popularity of the 2015 Lineup

Nissan Sentra

 

Nissan sales are better than ever thanks to the popularity of the Murano, Rogue, and Sentra. So far, this year has seen a 5.7% increase in sales, especially because of the record-breaking April numbers.

According to Nissan, the Rogue sales were up 44.5% this year, which is nothing compared to the 72.9% increase in Murano sales. Why are these models so popular? Since global demand for SUVs has steadily risen over the past couple of years, customers appreciate the affordability and quality of vehicles like the Rogue and Murano.

The Sentra, on the other hand, has been steadily rising to the top of sales over the past few years. This model is incredibly practical, especially because it’s fuel efficiency and affordable price. The Sentra is popular among younger generations who are looking for a sporty, yet useful car to drive in town or on the highway.

Whether you want something to take you from point A to point B or you want something that can hit the trails without difficulty, the 2015 Nissan lineup is for you. It’s no wonder the 2015 Nissan Sales are so incredible so far.

Nissan Customer Loyalty Booms Thanks to the New LEAF

nissan leaf

The Nissan LEAF was recently named one of the most popular cars on the road based on customer loyalty. During the annual IHS Automotive Loyalty Awards, the LEAF took home the award for best Non-Luxury Traditional Compact Car. Considering it was the only plug-in nominated, the fact that it won says a lot about its incredible performance and quality.

According to Nissan, the new LEAF is selling like crazy, beating all of its previous sales records in 2014. This plug-in features seating for five, 114 MPGe, and a range of 84 miles. The LEAF truly is one of the best alternative-energy models on the market.

“Since entering the market in 2010, the Nissan LEAF has steadily gained supporters throughout the U.S.,” said Toby Perry, director of marketing for Nissan LEAF. “While the majority of original buyers were electric vehicle enthusiasts, we’re now seeing more and more ‘regular’ car buyers fall in love with LEAF.”

Nissan customer loyalty is so impressive because of the high-degree of quality that comes standard with every model. Not only is the LEAF an affordable car, but engineers have consistently pushed the envelope on the design. That’s one major reason more drivers than ever are switching to the all-electric model.

The Nissan Sentra And Other Models Hit The Gym

Nissan Versa

There’s nothing wrong with inspiring yourself.  I mean, you can’t always rely on others to do it for you!  This is the lesson we can take from Nissan.  They recently decided to freshen up the look of the Nissan Sentra, Altima and Versa lines.  For this improvement, they took cues from their own work – that is, the refresh they gave their 2015 Nissan Murano and 2016 Nissan Maxima.

The move they are making is towards “sportier” models.  The change is intended to help the Sentra, Altima and Versa stay competitive while Nissan works on full changes to these models.

That adjective, “sporty,” has raised some eyebrows in the automobile community.  That’s because many times a move towards sporty means sacrificing space and comfort. But not this time, says Shiro Nakamuro, Nissan’s design chief: “We have the most roomy hatchback or sedan in the segment, so we don’t want to throw away our strengths.”

We at Bates Nissan are well aware of these strengths. Stop by for a test drive and let us introduce them to you today!

 

Nissan Sales Numbers Remain Excellent through July

With the start of August, we’re now firmly entrenched in the second half of 2014—and it’s been an excellent year for Nissan so far. Through the end of July, Nissan sales numbers have been up 12 percent over last year, well above the industry average. Plus, Nissan can now boast that it owns the top producing manufacturing plant in the nation; the Smyrna plant has produced more cars in America than any other.

“Nissan’s plans to meet the goals of Power 88 in North America are driving profitable and sustainable growth, through higher sales volumes and lower incentive spending,” said José Muñoz, executive vice president and North American chairman, Nissan Motor Co. “We’ve introduced all-new models that are resonating with customers, ramped up additional production in the region and revamped the way we work with our dealers, and those efforts are paying dividends.”

Munoz referenced the Power 88 plan, an aggressive business plan that is driving much of the company’s current growth. It’s a plan with effects that have trickled down all the way to us here at Bates Nissan, and we can’t wait to share the wealth with you. So come see us today and find out what awesome deals and vehicles we’ve currently got in stock for you.

Nissan is on Top for February Sales

2014 Nissan Rogue - February Sales

The 2014 Nissan Rogue leads Nissan’s February sales with a record 17,197 units sold nationwide.

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.
