NISSAN MAKES ITS MARK ON MARCH SALES Nissan breaks sales record set in March 2012 Qashqai maintains position as sixth best-selling car in the UK Record sales for 100% electric Nissan LEAF LCV performance tops record set last year Nissan is celebrating again this March after breaking sales records set last year. Despite
speculation that the 13-plate would deter buyers, UK new car
registrations rose by 5.9% in March. During March, 23,576 new Nissans
were delivered giving the company a market share of 5.4%, representing a
6.4% increase over the same month in 2012. For
the full financial year (April 2012-March 2013), Nissan sold a record
120,310 new vehicles, giving a record market share of 5.2%. Sales
of the 100% electric Nissan LEAF went up by 38% over the same period
last year, firmly establishing it as the UK's best selling all-electric
vehicle. This comes just a week after Prime Minister David Cameron
visited the company's Sunderland plant to mark the start of production
of the next generation LEAF. Nissan's
pioneering Qashqai crossover model continued to show its popularity,
maintaining its position as the sixth best-selling car in the UK in
March with 8,465 models sold. The Juke compact crossover also
celebrated its best-ever month with sales of 6,382, over a thousand more
than were sold this time last year. Jim
Wright, managing director of Nissan (GB) said: "There's no doubt that
the new car market is becoming increasingly competitive, which only goes
to show just how impressive Nissan's latest record-breaking sales
result is. It's proof that we're offering exactly the right vehicles for
UK buyers." Nissan's
LCV range made a valuable contribution to the company's record sales.
The multi-award winning NV200 was the best seller in March with sales of
1508, up a staggering 118%. Nissan will be showcasing the 100% electric
eNV200 at the Commercial Vehicle show at the NEC in Birmingham next
week. Wright
continued: "We are looking forward to the exciting new products we have
coming in the next 12 months including the new LEAF and NOTE which will
be built at our fantastic plant in Sunderland."
