“These positive results for past fiscal year show that our business plan, our new product introduction program and our investment in North America are working,” said José Muñoz, executive vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and chairman, Nissan North America, Inc. “Credit also goes to our more than 37,000 employees and to our strong network of highly engaged Nissan and Infiniti retailers. Two million thanks to everyone.”
Sales in the new NNA fiscal year, which begins today, are projected to remain strong – driven by additional new product introductions.
