    Nissan March 2018 U.S. Auto Sales

    Nissan reported it sold 162,535 vehicles in the United States in March, down 3.7 percent below the 168,832 sold in March of 2017. Sales were down 7.2 percent on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis in which there were 28 selling days in March of 2018 vs. 27 in March of 2017.

    Nissan’s YTD sales of 416,003 were down 0.2 percent below the 416,891 sold through the same period of 2017. Sales were down 2.8 percent on a DSR basis with 77 selling days in 2018 vs. 75 through the same period of 2017.


    Nissan March and 1Q Sales Highlights

    In March, Rogue achieved the best monthly sales performance in history with 42,151 vehicles sold, up 6.7 percent over the 39,512 sold in March of 2017. YTD sales of 116,454 are up 14.8 percent over the 101,421 sold during the same period of 2017.


    Top 10 March 2018 sales items of note: The well accepted Equinox continues to outsell the perennial leading CR-V.


    B and C-Segment March 2018 sales items of note: The Sonic had a poor showing into the end of last year but that has since subsided as discounts continue to move it back to a more prominent position in the B-segment. Remember it used to hold on to the #2 spot behind the Versa for months on end just a few years ago. The all-new and imho, best B-segment available, all-new 2018 Accent continues to flounder since its release.


    D and Utility-Segment March 2018 sales items of note: Other than the up and coming 5-series, there is a lot of blank ink in the D-Segment. The all-new Camry is holding its own while most of the segment continues to see sales declines as perspective purchasers continue to move to the CUV where double digit gains show across much of the top 10 in that segment.

    In the Crossover segment, Rogue has held onto its #1 position and #3 overall position through the1Q ahead of RAM pickups. That is saying something!


    Pickup-Segment March 2018 sales items of note: There really is no change other than the sheer volume of Pickups’ sold. The F-Series has outsold 12 of the top 18 manufactures by its lonesome.


    Electrified-Segment March 2018 sales items of note: With a slow January start, Ford has placed a lot of $s behind its Fusion Hybrid and its sales volume again dominates the HEV segment placing the strong RAV4 and fading Prius behind. The Camry Hybrid although not moving beyond its stagnant 5th spot within the HEV Top 10, the positive sales results bode well for continued success of the most efficient midsize available today.

    On the electric front, the Prius Prime PHEV now accounts for 41.8 percent of the Prius liftback sales. Given the lower cost and plug-in capability, is it any wonder?

    Tesla, Honda, FCA, and Kia do not supply HEV/PHEV/BEV monthly sales breakouts.

    U.S. Automobile March 2018 vs. March 2017 Market Share Comparison
