NISSAN RECORDS STRONG SEPTEMBER SALES IN EUROPESeptember sales increase of 58% from August 2012 - fourth successive month of growthJuke, Qashqai and Micra continue to fuel sales pipeline despite tough economic climateRussia and UK remain high performing markets given strong industrial footprintROLLE (Switzerland) October 16th -
Today, Nissan announced European sales of 66,074 units in September
2012, recording an increase for the fourth successive month, up 58% from
August 2012. Despite
the challenging economic conditions across Europe, Nissan's calendar
year to date sales volume continues to track ahead of 2011 at 1.2% up
over the same period last year. Market share is also up, with Nissan achieving a 4.1% share in September and 3.9% for the first nine months of the year. Sales
in the UK saw a fivefold increase between August 2012 and September
2012, driven by demand for the Sunderland-produced Juke, Qashqai and
Note. Meanwhile sales in Russia have steadily grown since the beginning
of 2012, due to brisk crossover sales and the popularity of the X-Trail
SUV. Contributing
to this European growth was the iconic Nissan Micra which saw sales
more than double in September 2012, with Nissan's family of crossovers
also delivering strong performance - Nissan Juke up 77% from August 2012
and Nissan Qashqai up 48%. Nissan
Vice President for Sales Operations in Europe, Guillaume Cartier, said:
"Nissan continues to buck the trend in Europe by demonstrating strong
month-on-month sales and significant growth across some of our flagship
models." "Nissan
continues to expand the regional business and we have announced over
half a billion Euros investment in new models this calendar year alone.
This will add to our exciting model line-up, which is already amongst
the broadest of any manufacturer. "Although
the remainder of the year will continue to be turbulent for all
manufacturers in Europe, Nissan is optimistic that it can maintain its
strong sales and production performance in the last quarter and into
2013." ### About Nissan in Europe Nissan
