Big Mid-State Employer Sees Sales Decline
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Some disappointing sales numbers were released Wednesday by one of Middle Tennessee’s biggest employers.
Nissan reported a sales drop in September of 2.4 percent. The company’s North American division, headquartered in Franklin, fared somewhat better with a sales decline of just over one percent.
There were some bright spots. Sales of the Nissan Rogue and Pathfinder were both up significantly.
Nissan says September sales of its new LEAF, all-electric vehicle, were the best the car has seen this year.
Nissan is set to begin building the LEAF here in Middle Tennessee next year.
