Its that time of the month again, Nissan sales figures are out. Coming in with 67 cars sold in February 2012 vs 38 in February 2011, Nissan GT-R sales are up 76.3%. It sounds a lot more impressive with the percentage, than the actual number of cars sold. Other notables in the figures on Nissan's Press Site. Nissan 370Z sales were 553 cars, down 3.2 %, showing that people don't really want sports cars, or maybe they just don't want the 370Z. The turbocharged DIG Nissan Juke sold 2947 units, down 1.3% showing people like ugly? The LEAF sold 437 units, which is sure to go up with the nationwide rollout. In other news, the Nissan Altima sold 32,953 cars. That is correct. 32,953, up 58.3%. People like Altimas a lot more than they like about every other Nissan car combined.
