Approximately 371,000 cars, trucks and buses were sold and registered in Japan in January, a drop of about 30,000 from December, according to statistics released Thursday by a national industry association.
Data from the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) for January 2007 showed that Toyota again topped the list, selling and registering more than 96,000 passenger cars and more than 12,000 trucks. Nissan took the second spot once again with 45,377 cars and 7,195 trucks. Mazda was third with a total of 18,139 cars and 2,997 trucks sold and registered.
A grand total of 308,256 cars and 62,071 trucks were sold and registered for all Japanese automakers collectively.
JAMA refers to new registration and sales based on license plate registration, rather than chassis-based. Japanese-brand motor vehicle products that are manufactured overseas and imported for the domestic Japanese market are included in the manufacturing data.
