For the three quarters of 2023, Nissan's production was +2.4% and sales were +1.1%. With most manufacturers increasing post Covid, this doesn't sound very good. However, there is a good reason for it as we will see.
Please note, the charts below have complete year data for 2021 and 2022 but nine months for 2023.
Production: There are five main producing nations Nissan separates data for. China is the largest but for Q3 the volume was -39% and looks like it is about to drop in the ranking. Japan was +35%, the U.S. +14%, Mexico +56%, the U.K. +38% and the remainder -4%. China could have put a real damper on things but all other nations mentioned negated that with strong growth.
