As deliveries surged by 21.5 percent, the Nissan division sold 76,754 units last month, setting an all-time volume record for November—and surpassing sales at Honda in the process. The brand’s results were well balanced, too, with nearly every vehicle in the lineup reporting sales gains.
Leading the way was the Nissan Versa, which set a November sales record of its own. Buoyed by the all-new sedan model—still the least-expensive car in the U.S.—the Versa rang up 9,291 deliveries last month, good for a 38.2 percent increase and the most of any subcompact in America. To put the Versa’s performance in context, no other car in its segment topped 6,000 deliveries, while sales of the rival Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic stood at 3,552 units and 4,496 units, respectively.
