Japanese Vehicles Market in November 2016 nissan_note_2014

Japanese Vehicles Market in November recorded the best increase of the year, thanks to a strong yen. Nissan grew in double digit pushed up by the new leader Nissan Note.

Market Outlook

Analyzing in more detail the Japan’s economic recovery, it appears to be less robust. In fact, the weak wage growth continues to dampen private consumption, while an uncertain global outlook and a strong yen remain a concern for businesses. In Japan, Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election has the potential not only to hit the country’s all-important external sector, but also to further strengthen the yen if global uncertainty rises.

Meantime, the new vehicles sales in November gained ground moderately with the best growth of the year.

According to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in November total new vehicles sales increased moderately  by 7.7% with 417.560 units.

Year to date November sales had been 4.572.318, down 2.0%.
