Despite the Ghosn fiasco and on top of that, that particularly cringeworthy dealership meeting in the U.S. and reports of model cuts, Nissan Philippines has had an outstanding year with 42,694 units sold by the end of December 2019.
That means Nissan PH has bagged a very significant 22.2% growth rate compared to last year’s (2018) performance which if you guys can remember was also positive growth.
Thus, this places Nissan within the top three car manufacturers here in the Philippines. Apart from that, Nissan PH also saw record-breaking sales figures back in March at 4,616 units and in September 2019 at 4,768 units sold.
