Nissan grows market share
NISSAN has reported strong February sales after growing its market share in Europe.
The UK, home to Nissan's record-breaking Sunderland plant, recorded an increase of seven per cent in fiscal year-to-date sales.
Sales of the Nissan Qashqai were up 8 per cent compared to February 2012. Qashqai sales have risen each year since its launch in 2007.
The results mark the start of a busy year for Nissan as the manufacturer kicks off a new product launches for Europe. Launching first will be the newly styled b-segment Nissan Note as well as the new 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf which will start production in Sunderland later this month.
Guillaume Cartier, Nissan Vice President for Sales Operations in Europe, said: "We expect 2013 to be a strong year for Nissan in Europe. We have a high performing manufacturing base in Europe and a strong pipeline of exciting products that will bring even more buyers to Nissan dealerships across Europe in the coming months.
"Despite the economic downturn, Nissan's ambitions in Europe remain stronger than ever and we aim to expand our European presence by increasing localised manufacturing and investment in the region."
