NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

* Nissan LEAF sales totaled 2,236 deliveries, up 286.2 percent and the
nameplate's best month since launch. March marks the first full month of
deliveries of the lower-priced 2013 LEAF, now produced at Nissan's assembly
plant in  Smyrna, Tenn.  Price-competitive with traditional cars in its segment,
LEAF is the best-selling pure electric vehicle in the world.  
* Sales of the all-new Pathfinder SUV totaled 9,071, up 177.1 percent, setting a
new March record. Year-to-date Pathfinder sales, which launched in  November
2012, are up 172.4 percent.  
* Nissan Altima totaled 37,763 in March on higher retail and lower fleet sales
than year-ago levels.  
* Nissan Versa sales finished at 15,917, up 2.1 percent and establishing a new
March record for the nameplate. Versa is the best-selling sub-compact in the
U.S.  
* Nissan NV sales finished March at 1,290, the best month ever for the large
commercial vans.

Nissan's core volume models like Altima, Pathfinder and Versa are delivering the
value, performance, style and innovation that consumers want. With strong retail
demand for Altima, Pathfinder up almost 180 percent and the U.S.-built
all-electric LEAF having its best month since launch, Nissan had its best month
in history.

INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS

* Contributing to Infiniti's increase in March were its luxury crossovers and
sport utility vehicles, which were up 50.9 percent.  
* The Infiniti JX 7-passenger luxury crossover, which was launched exactly one
year ago, had sales of 2,633 units in March, an increase of 387 percent over
prior year.
