Despite the economic uncertainty in some European markets, which continues to impact all manufacturers, Nissan’s diverse product range is helping to maintain sales.
The robust monthly performance means, for the January-May period, Nissan’s average share of the European market stands at nearly four per cent compared to 3.7 per cent over the same period last year.
Demand for the Sunderland-built Qashqai crossover remains strong as does the popularity of Nissan’s growing range of light commercial vehicles (LCVs)
It was announced last month that the LCV range will receive a boost in the next financial year when the innovative 100 per cent electric e-NV200 van enters production in Barcelona.
Nissan Europe Sales Vice President, Guillaume Cartier, said: ‘Nissan’s performance in Europe so far this year is extremely encouraging. We are achieving this thanks to the breadth of our model range which allows us to compete strongly across many different segments.’
