Consistent record performance has placed Nissan firmly inside the exclusive group of companies recording more than 100,000 sales a year, despite shunning many traditional volume sectors.
Its inspired shift into SUVs led the shifting market and it is now supplementing that with a return to the lower-medium sector by offering the new Pulsar. Its commitment to electric vehicles is generating interesting returns, as the Leaf now commands more than half the market with more than 4,000 sales last year, double its 2013 volume.
Fleet sales have played an important part in Nissan's success, accounting for more than 63,000 units last year.
2015 has continued the record-breaking run, with 11,076 January registrations representing nearly 26% growth, returning its highest-ever market share of 6.72%.
Note: Manufacturers administer the franchised contracts for cars and LCVs in different ways. Broadly, for some the contract to sell cars and LCVs is managed through a separate dealer contract. For others one contract covers both vehicle types.
AMi seeks to acknowledge the difference and reflect it in the count of each dealer groups total franchised outlets (franchised businesses) and sites (locations).
Nissan administers car and LCV sales under a single contract.
