Nissan Note tops Japan’s January sales rankings

YOKOHAMA, Japan – The Nissan Note took the No. 1 spot in Japan’s new car sales rankings for January, as the popularity of the e-POWER electrified powertrain helped make the model the best-selling compact car in the country, Nissan announced today.
 
The Nissan Serena placed fourth in the overall rankings and was also No. 1 in its segment. The rankings exclude sales of mini-vehicles.
 
The e-POWER version of the Note has been a hit in Japan since it was introduced in November 2016, with sales reaching more than 100,000 vehicles in the first 11 months. The car is driven by an electric motor that’s powered by a gasoline engine. The 100% electric motor drive system treats drivers to powerful acceleration, quiet operation and exceptional fuel efficiency, while the role of the gasoline engine is strictly to generate electric power. Nissan is planning to introduce more e-POWER models globally.
