NISSAN has announced its September figures – and the UK is still the maker’s best selling market.
The European branch of Nissan sold a total of 56,269 cars in September, 16,518 of which were sold in the UK.
The figures also reveal that Nissan in Europe made a five per cent increase on 2009, and took an overall market stake of 3.3 per cent.
Shares increased in many of the European markets in September too. Market share in Russia was better by five per cent, up 1.3 per cent on 2009, while the UK market rose 4.5 per cent, up 0.2 per cent compared to 2009. France and Spain were also up.
Vice president sales operations for Nissan in Europe, Bernard Loire, said: ‘September was another good month for Nissan in Europe.
‘Nissan sales in Russia doubled versus September 2009 with a market share of 5%. The first 2600 Jukes were delivered to delighted customers and the order banks continue to grow.’
