Nissan attributes fleet sales success to ‘built in Britain’ appeal

Nissan has reported a healthy 9% increase in fleet sales in the first 10 months of 2012, with the Qashqai and Juke, both manufactured at its Sunderland plant, leading the way.

So far this year – up to the end of October – Nissan has sold 43,918 company cars, giving it a 5% share of the UK fleet market.

The Qashqai remains the brand’s best fleet seller at 19,309 units, with Juke more than doubling sales year on year to 8,965 units.

Add in Qashqai+2 and Note sales of 4,965 and 6,005 units respectively and 89% of Nissan’s fleet volume is built in the UK.

Year to date Leaf fleet sales have also more than doubled in 2012, up to 458 units.

Nissan’s fleet sales director, Barry Beeston, commented: “It is good to see our British-built products are proving a winner with company car drivers.

“Qashqai keeps going from strength to strength, with residuals remaining strong, and we are seeing Leaf gaining momentum in the corporate sector.”
