Japan’s second-largest automaker, after Toyota, Nissan increased production 1.4% in 2015 and set a personal sales record with 5.4 million units sold worldwide. In the U.S., Nissan’s sales increased 7% over 2014, thanks to a bump in truck and SUV sales fueled by cheap gas prices and low interest rates. However, cheaper prices at the pump weighed down sales of the company’s Nissan Leaf electric car. Nissan has also launched a new semi-autonomous driving technology, called ProPilot, that is meant to assist drivers in certain situations and is different from hands-free driving technology.
