Car Sales Nissan UK By Model: 2009-12

Nissan release data of sales by model for the UK market. I have to say the openness is refreshing, and a credit to Nissan UK. If only other car makers were this open. Let's face it, the competition know what Nissan is selling if they are doing their job well, and visa versa. As to why some companies are so secretive is pointless and worse, they are missing uot on a chance to promote thier business.

I will start by promoting the excellent job Nissan are doing in the UK. Looking at the chart below, you can see how Nissan are growing each year and gaining market share. They make excellent vehicles both in design and reliability. The UK public are realising this and supporting the brand more and more.

The Qashqai (Dualis for Aussie readers) just keeps getting stronger as more people are aware of what it has to offer. The new Juke may have looks you like or don't nevertheless is increasing strongly. The Note is a practical car which came to NZ only as a used import from Japan (I don't know why it wasn't sold new like the other two mentioned so far) but coming to the end of its model cycle.
