Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Sales and Marketing, Service and Parts,
Nissan U.S.A. said: "September was a unique month with fewer selling days than
the prior year with the Labor Day weekend falling into August sales reporting
for the first time in several years. While this skewed year-to-year
comparisons we are optimistic that strong auto sales will continue into the
fourth quarter."

NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

  oNissan Division posted sales of 77,828 units, a decrease of 5.6 percent
    from 82,462 the prior year.
  oNissan LEAF set a September sales record finishing the month with 1,953
    deliveries, an increase of 99 percent year over year. Once again, Atlanta
    was the No. 1 LEAF market in the U.S., as electric vehicle sales increases
    spread from the West Coast to a new wave of markets.
  oVersa deliveries increased 9.5 percent over the prior year to 8,776, with
    sales of the all-new 2014 Versa Note beginning to pick up momentum. Versa
    continues to be the leader among subcompacts for 2013.
  oSales of Rogue crossovers totaled 11,353 in September as Nissan prepares
    to launch the all-new, 2014 Rogue later this year. Nissan is conducting a
    special reservation program for the all-new Rogue, which will be produced
    at the company's Smyrna, Tenn. manufacturing plant.
  oPathfinder sales continue to increase, up 72.8 percent to 5,537 in
    September. Deliveries are up 295 percent calendar-year-to-date over the
    same period in 2012.
  oFrontier sales jumped 7 percent in September to 4,662 units.

Diaz said, "Anticipation is building for the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue, which
we expect to begin selling next month. Rogue marks the last of our five
top-selling models to be completely redesigned in the past 15 months, a
strategy that also has driven stronger sales of Altima, Sentra, Versa and
Pathfinder. We expect that demand for these new products will continue to
accelerate our sales momentum."

INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS

  oInfiniti today reported sales of 9,040 in September, down 4.3 percent from
    9,445 units a year earlier.
  oSeptember marked the first full month of sales for the all-new 2014
    Infiniti Q50, and the luxury sports sedan had sales of 2,367, with a total
    of 4,801 units since it went on sale in early August.
  oSales of Infiniti sports sedans, which include the 2013 Infiniti G Sedan,
    totaled 4,144 in September, an increase of 47.6 percent, bringing the
    automaker's sales of luxury passenger cars to be up 28.3 percent for the
    month.

NOTE: To ensure consistency in global sales reporting, Nissan North America
calculates monthly variances on a straight-percentage basis, unadjusted for
the number of selling days. September 2013 had 23 selling days, while
September 2012 had 25 selling days. Adjusted for selling days, Nissan sales
increased 102.6 percent over the prior year.
