SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co Ltd <7201.T> and its local joint-venture sold 86,000 automobiles in China in August, up 1 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Tuesday.

That follows a 1.8 percent year-on-year rise in July and a 7.7 percent decline in June.

In the first eight months of this year, Nissan sold a total of 768,500 vehicles, down 6.3 percent from a year earlier.

Nissan makes vehicles in China in partnership with Dongfeng Automobile Group Co <0489.HK>.
