Nissan, Honda sales climb in first 2 months

Japanese automakers Nissan Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co. reported sales increases in China during January and February.

Nissan brand sales rose 6.5 percent from the year-earlier period to 156,543 vehicles on demand for crossovers and the Teana midsize sedan.

Honda, meanwhile, said its sales during the first two months totaled 203,239 vehicles, up 3.9 percent from the same period a year ago.

Nissan’s two-month sales of crossovers -- the Kicks, X-Trail, Qashqai and Murano -- jumped 29 percent from a year earlier to 64,942, said Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Nissan’s joint venture partner in China.

Teana deliveries advanced 22 percent to 16,472.

Sales of the Sylphy compact sedan, the Nissan brand’s top-selling model in China, remained steady from the same period last year at 52,100.

Sales of other Nissan models were undisclosed.

Dongfeng did not reveal Nissan brand’s China sales for February, which had fewer working days than February 2017.

At Honda, sales in China fell 5.9 percent in February from a year earlier to 77,065 vehicles, after climbing 10.9 percent in January, the company said.

Industry analysts prefer to aggregate China sales for the first two months to compensate for the Lunar New Year holiday, which is celebrated on different dates from year to year.

This year, the weeklong holiday was observed from Feb. 15-21. Last year, it ran from Jan. 27-Feb. 2.
