Car Sales Report January 2022
Nissan India has announced its monthly sales figures for January 2022, revealing that the company’s total domestic sales, including both Nissan and Datsun brands, were 4,250 units. Last month, the Japanese automaker recorded a year-on-year (YoY) increase of 5.7 percent over the 4,021 vehicles sold in the same month in 2021. In January 2022, however, the firm reported a month-over-month (MoM) increase of 41% over the 3,010 units sold in December 2021.
Nissan India Exports Increase
In terms of exports, the firm shipped 1,224 units of Nissan and Datsun automobiles from India in January 2022. Last month, Nissan announced the addition of 13 more nations to the Nissan Magnite’s export markets, increasing the total to 15 countries. Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Brunei, Uganda, Kenya, Seychelles, Mozambique, Zambia, Mauritius, Tanzania, and Malawi are among the countries included.
Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, commented on the company’s sales success, saying, “Nissan India registered a cumulative growth of 203 per cent year to date on the strength of strong demand for the Big, Bold, Beautiful Nissan Magnite overcoming the headwind challenges of Covid-19 & lower supplies due to semiconductor shortages. The customer response for the ‘Make in India, Made for the World’ SUV has been phenomenal with Nissan Magnite being exported to more than 15 countries. Going forward we do see the supply challenges to continue for a few more months while we endeavour to enhance the customer experience with the lowest cost of ownership.”
Nissan MoM And YoY Analysis
On a year-to-date (YTD) basis, Nissan India has seen a total gain of 203 percent. However, we must consider the fact that the market position from April 2020 to January 2021 was far worse than during the current fiscal year. Furthermore, the Nissan Magnite, the company’s high-volume product, was only released in December 2020. As a result, this three-fold increase is an exception. When compared to the same period in FY2021, Nissan’s YTD cumulative export sales increased by 36%.
