PARIS -- Nissan Motor Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn predicted on Friday the Japanese carmaker would sell more than 3 million cars this year, its best performance in a decade.
"It will be another year of strong growth," Ghosn said in an interview with financial daily La Tribune. "We should pass the level of three million cars sold for the first time in ten years."
The interview was published a day after Ghosn said the war in Iraq meant demand for cars in the United States and Europe in fiscal 2003-04 could be lower than previously thought.
He also said Nissan would at least meet its profit targets for fiscal year 2002-2003 and was well placed to ride out any slide in demand in the year ahead.
