32% growth recorded in H1 2021 at Nissan of Arabian Automobiles


Dubai: Arabian Automobiles, the flagship company of the AW Rostamani Group and the exclusive dealer for Nissan in Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates recorded a strong sales growth of 32% in H1 2021 outperforming the market growth of 21%.

“The recorded growth is evidence of an economy that is well on its way towards a strong recovery led by the vision of Dubai’s government and its initiatives that have successfully placed the emirate ahead of global cities. We have exceeded market expectations and even overachieved our 2019 sales, which is a great testament to our team’s capabilities across our online and offline verticals to ensure customer satisfaction through every step of the journey. We continue to remain committed to maintaining this success with exciting launches this year.  With the launch of Expo 2020 right around the corner, we are confident and determined to maintain this success well into the next year,” said Michel Ayat, CEO of AWR Automotive.

This growth confirms Nissan’s strong recovery which is driven by the positive performance of its SUV segment (Patrol Nismo, X-Trail, and X-Terra launched in November 2020).
