Total Sales by Model
My Japanese is not perfect, so please correct me if this is wrong
The most popular seller by far was the Black Edition. I wonder if the US had the Black Edition from the beginning, if we would see a similar sales percentage of Black Editions to Normal/Premium’s. Only 55 total SpecV’s sold. Only 14 EGOIST. The 7 Pures, that is just the new name for the base model. They managed to sell 1 EGOIST a month. Probably not worth the hassle.
US conversion as of 3-10-2012
|Pure Edition||8,694,000 yen ($105,434)|
|Black Edition||9,471,000 yen ($114,758)|
|Premium Edition||9,618,000 yen ($116,539)|
|EGOIST||15,000,000 yen ($181,752)|
|SpecV(no longer sold)||15,750,000 yen ($189,256)|
|Club Track edition||10,479,000 yen ($126,971)|
The current Japanese exchange rate, makes the selling price in Japan, on the Premium Edition about $10,000 more than the Black Edition. The Black Edition in Japan is less expensive because in Japan, it does not have the same wheels as the US car, or for 2013, it doesn't have the carbon fiber wing. Just the wing alone is around $10,000 from the Nissan dealer.
