Industry insiders believe that the continued decline in sales and the poor performance of the electric car market may be one of the main drivers of Nissan's measures.

The latest data show that from January to March this year, Nissan's cumulative sales in China, including passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicles, reached 167291 vehicles, an increase of 3.29% compared with the same period last year. On the market performance in the first quarter of this year, Mr. Shohei Yamazaki, senior vice president of Nissan Motor Company, chairman of Nissan China Management Committee and president of Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd., said: "in the first quarter of 2024, the situation in the Chinese market is still complex." Nissan is having a hard time at the moment.

Sales in China come from Dongfeng Nissan passenger cars, which mainly operate three major brands: Nissan, Infiniti and Qichen. Among them, the Nissan brand is the main source of sales in Nissan China. Models for sale include Xuanyi, Teana, Qijun, Xiaoke, Tuda, Jinke, Loulan and so on. Xuanyi is the main product of Dongfeng Nissan.

Nissan is considering cutting production by 30 per cent in China, while Nissan has an annual production capacity of about 1.6 million units in China, meaning it will cut production by about 500000 vehicles a year, the Nikkei News reported on March 12.
