Nissan (NSANY) Altima sold 302,934 units in 2012, up 12.6% from a year earlier. It was the first time that Altima's U.S. sales topped 300,000.
The Altima is more than holding its own in the tough battle for dominance in the mid-sized sedan sector, which accounts for three of the top six vehicles and where Fusion also competes as does GM's (GM) Chevrolet Malibu, which sold 210,951 units, up 3% in 2013.
Nissan's U.S. sales, including Infiniti sales, totaled 1.14 million, topping 1 million for the second year in a row. Many of the cars, including Altima, were produced at the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tenn. Nissan introduced a redesigned Altima in Smyrna in May and said its goal is to catch Toyota (TM) Camry.It is good to have goals.
