Nissan's November dips but beats estimate

Franklin-based Nissan Group said its dealers sold a little more than 103,000 cars in November, a drop of 3 percent from the year before but comfortably above Edmunds analysts' forecast of less than 98,000. The Nissan brand saw sales dip 2 percent, with the top-selling model Altima slipping 7 percent while sales of the Rogue SUV and smaller Sentra models more than offset drops in the number of Maxima and Juke cars shipped to consumers.

"Through November, Nissan has set an all-time yearly sales record in 2014, with a month still to go," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations in a statement. "Over the next three months, we will look to keep our foot on the accelerator through high-visibility, big marketing moments, including Nissan's return to Super Bowl advertising for the first time in almost two decades."
