The Japanese car maker Nissan expects its sales to drop by 110,000-120,000 units in fiscal 2013 starting in April, as domestic demand is returning to normal after the first-time car buyer scheme expired. 

According to Takayuki Kimura, president of Nissan Motor (Thailand), the company's sales for both passenger cars and pickup trucks are estimated at 132,000 units for fiscal 2012, ending on March 31 this year.

Such a sales figure would represent a nearly 72.5% surge from the 76,525 units sold in fiscal 2011.
