Nissan Motor, Japan’s third-biggest car manufacturer, expects to exceed its target in China this year due to tax cuts and government subsidies in Asia’s biggest auto market, Bloomberg reported. Takashi Nishibayashi, head of Nissan’s China department, said Nissan expects to exceed its sales goal of 570,000 vehicles in 2009, but stopped short of giving a revised target. Nissan is among automakers that have benefited from tax cuts and government subsidies in China, including the halving of tax on vehicles with engines of 1.6 liters or smaller, and subsidies in rural areas. The policies helped car sales in China jump a record 90% last month. Nissan’s sales in China rose 32% to 466,219 vehicles in the first eight months of this year, making it the company’s second-biggest market after the US.
