BEIJING, April 2 Nissan Motor Co Ltd
and its Chinese joint venture sold 110,000 cars in China in
March, down 16.6 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese
automaker said on Tuesday.
That compares with a 46 percent plunge in February, though
those figures take account of the week-long Lunar New Year
Sales in the first three months of the year came to 284,000
vehicles, down 15.1 percent from the same period a year earlier,
the company said.
Japanese carmakers' sales in China plunged late last year
after violent anti-Japan protests broke out in September in
response to a territorial dispute between the countries.
