(Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co Ltd and its local joint venture sold about 112,600 automobiles in China in June, up 11.1 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Wednesday.
That follows a 3.1 percent year-on-year rise in May and a 14.7 percent increase in April.
The company's sales in the first six months of the year came to about 620,400 vehicles, up 14.6 percent from the same period a year earlier.
Nissan, which operates a car venture in China with Dongfeng Motor Group Co Ltd, aims to sell 1.4 million cars in the country this year, up 10.6 percent from a year earlier.
Nissan's Senior Vice President Jun Seki said in May that the company aims to achieve annual China sales of 2 million cars by 2017-2018 as it bolsters its business in the world's largest car market.
