After we learned that Volkswagen had not such a bad year in 2015, despite Dieselgate scandal, we now find out that Renault Group was also doing excelent in 2015. According to recent statistics, Renault-Nissan Alliance sold 8,528,887 million vehicles in 2015, only 1 percent more from the previous year, thanks to record sales in the United States, China and Europe.

Combined sales for the world’s fourth largest car group, which includes Renault Group, Dacia, Nissan and Russia’s Avtovaz, was also influenced by falling sales in Russia and China.

Renault Group, Europe’s third-largest automaker, sold a record 2,801,592 vehicles worldwide in 2015, up 3.3 percent from 2014, in a market that grew by 1.6 percent. This marked the third consecutive year of sales growth for Renault. Dacia sales accounted for a record 550,920 vehicles, up 7.7%. 

Nissan sold a record 5,421,804 cars and trucks worldwide, up 2.1 percent. In each of its two biggest markets, the United States and China, Nissan sold at least 1.25 million vehicles. Infiniti accounted for a record 215,250 vehicles, up 16 percent from the previous year.

Avtovaz, which sells cars under the LADA brand, sold 305,491 vehicles, down 31.5 percent due to the slump in the Russian market. Together, the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Avtovaz sell about one in three cars in Russia. And, more to that, the Alliance increased its market share from 30.7 percent in 2014 to 32.3 percent in 2015.

In the United States, Nissan set an all-time record with 1,484,918 vehicles, up 7.1 percent, resulting in a record market share of 8.5 percent. Nissan also set annual sales records for Rogue, Versa, NV and NV200.

In China, Nissan sold 1.25 million vehicles, up 6.3 percent. Nissan remains the leading Japanese automaker in China with a market share of more than 5 percent.
