Feb 4 Nissan Motor Co Ltd and its China
joint venture sold 115,700 vehicles in China in January, up 22.2
percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on
That shows an improvement from December when sales fell 24
percent compared with a year earlier.
But figures were skewed due to weak holiday-hit sales in
January last year. Showrooms in the world's largest auto market
are often closed for much of China's Lunar New Year holiday, a
week-long break that fell in January in 2012 but comes in
February this year.
