Japan automakers output still a mixed bag

Japan’s automakers reported mixed vehicle production figures Monday as the industry works toward recovery from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Some, such as Nissan, are doing considerably better than others.

Nissan Motor Co. made 419,831 vehicles worldwide in June, up 18.5 percent from the same time last year and an all-time record for a single month.

Its production in Japan rose 1.9 percent to 102,390 units thanks to strong demand for the Juke and Rogue crossovers. Global vehicle sales rose more than 13 percent in volume terms, and exports jumped 25 percent.
