Nissan began the day with disappointing Infiniti figures but predictable Nissan brand growth. Infiniti did report year-over-year growth for the calendar year, but sales are down compared with 2012, not to mention the 136K Infinitis sold in 2005. Honda's Acura division helped push the overall company forward in December but both brands struggled to put up signficant increases in calendar year 2014. FCA US's 20% December jump (FCA US LLC is Chrysler Group to you) was helped along by approximately 10,000 extra sales from Chrysler, 10,000 extra sales from Ram, and 10,000 extra sales from Jeep. General Motors led all manufacturers with 2.9 million sales in 2014. Three of the company's four brands reported December and year-end improvements. 

At the Ford Motor Company, December presented modest increases for the Ford brand thanks in large part to a big boost from the Mustang. Lincoln sales jumped 21%. Toyota, the planet's largest automobile manufacturer, produced a big December, especially with its Lexus brand: never in any prior month had Lexus sold this many new vehicles.
