Nissan Sales, Market Share Increases in Europe
The company announced today both its sales figures for the month of June and subsequently the year-to-date, but also its market share in Europe. Thus, for the first month of the summer, Nissan has delivered a total of 7,457 units, an increase of 8% compared to last year. For the calendar year-to-date Nissan’s sales in Europe hit 351,668 units boosted by the ever popular crossover family of Qashqai, Juke and Murano.
The Japanese carmaker has adapted most of its products to work on European roads, and this has show in the results, as most posted year-on-year sales increases contributing to a 3.4% European market share in June, compared to 3.1 percent a year ago.
“Nissan continues to have a very successful 2011 in Europe, with all of our major markets performing well. One of the key factors driving this performance, which is likely to position Nissan as June’s highest-selling Asian car brand in Europe, is the breadth and diversity of our product offering today. As well as strong crossover sales from Juke and Qashqai, we also saw important contributions from our commercial vehicles – in particular the innovative NV200 van and Primastar. X-TRAIL and Navara led our SUV sales while in the small car segment Micra and Note mini-MPV also had a good month,” said Bernard Loire, Vice President Sales Operations Europe.
