With the year coming to a close, and because we represent a Nissan dealership, we figured this would be an appropriate time to write about the most memorable Nissan moments of 2013. There were quite a few significant achievements to pick from, but we’ve managed to boil it down to the three we believe deserved to be at the top. So here goes.
- The Nissan LEAF success story. Originally released in 2011, the Nissan LEAF has already sold more units in 2013 than in 2011 and 2012 combined, enjoying incredible leaps in popularity month after month. This was made possible by ramping up its production and accessibility by localizing production in Smyrna, Tennessee. Now, there are over 40,000 LEAFs traveling American roads and saving millions in would-be gas money.
- Taxi of Tomorrow becomes Taxi of Today. After years of preparation and legal roadblocks, the Nissan NV200 Taxi finally hit the streets of Manhattan at the JFK International Airport in October 2013. Throughout the coming months and years, the NV200 will be bringing an unprecedented amount of efficiency and cleanliness to the New York cityscape.
- New November sales record. After experiencing significant sales gains throughout the year, Nissan’s sales success culminated last month as it set a new all-time U.S. sales record with a 10.7% increase over last year’s sales.
All in all, Nissan is looking better than ever. Which is why we hope to see you at Lewis Nissan!
