GUANGZHOU -- Nissan Motor sold 104,794 new vehicles in China last month, a 14.2% year-on-year gain and the first double-digit increase in five months on the popularity of its sedans and sport utility vehicles.

The Sylphy sedan was Nissan's best-selling car for the month, with unit sales ticking up 14% to 28,382. The X-Trail and Qashqai SUVs followed, with an 8% increase to 14,015 units and an 11% jump to 12,100, respectively. Sales of the automaker's smaller commercial-use vehicles soared 21%.

The Venucia brand, launched in 2010 exclusively for the Chinese market, saw unit sales surge 36%. The automaker sold 3,978 T70s, the first SUV in the Venucia lineup, which translates to a 24% increase on the year.

Toyota Motor and Honda Motor also enjoyed double-digit growth in volume sales despite the sluggish overall market here.

For the January-July period, Nissan's sales in the country went up 7.6% to 755,319 units. For the full year, sales are expected to reach an all-time high.
