Nissan sees global vehicle sales flat in 2008/09

TOKYO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co said it expects global vehicle sales in the current business year to March 2009 to come in at about the same level as its 3.77 million units the year before.

That would mark a downward revision from its prior projection from 3.9 million units this business year.

Nissan Chief Operating Officer Toshiyuki Shiga said the shortfall was mainly due to weakness in the U.S. market. (Reporting by Chang-Ran Kim)
