Sales up 10,648 this year
Nissan's overall sales are up 14 percent this year, and it's been getting media attention for its soon-available Leaf electric car. But for now the Maxima sedan is the model that's been maximizing Nissan's performance. Sales so far this year total 43,000, up more than 10,000 from the first eight months of last year. The company's Armada, Rogue, Frontier and Xterra are also doing well.
