DETROIT, Michigan - Nissan's global sales hit a record 4.6-million vehicles in 2011, despite some supply-chain disruptions from Japan's earthquake disaster.

Chief executive Carlos Ghosn said the record was remarkable given the disruptions caused by the March quake-tsunami-nuclear disaster, Ghosn told an automotive conference on the sidelines of the Detroit auto show.

Ghosn, CEO of both Nissan and French partner Renault, said Renault sold 2.7-million vehicles in 2011. Nissan is 44.3% owned by Renault.
