Nissan have had an impressive start to 2013, and are carrying on there record-breaking success from 2012. There two British built crossovers, the Juke and the Qashqai are more popular than ever, giving Nissan two spots in the top sellers list.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) have announced that Figures for January 2013 show that the Qashqai was the UK’s fifth bestselling car, its highest chart position to date.
The striking Juke, is also growing in popularity with buyers, breaking into the top ten for the first time.
The figures have come in just weeks after the official SMMT statistics showed that Nissan’s overall sales rocketed by 9.9% in 2012, helping it to a record 5.2% share of the UK’s new car market.
Jim Wright, Managing Director of Nissan GB, said: “Our innovative and exciting products continue to connect with British motorists and we are making the kinds of vehicles they really want to drive.
“The Qashqai has been a remarkable vehicle for us and continues to defy industry convention by becoming more popular with each passing year.
“Juke has also been a phenomenally successful model and appears to be following the trend set by its big brother. If anything, Juke is performing even more impressively than Qashqai was at the same period in its life. The next year will see the arrival of more innovative and exciting product from Nissan, so I’m certain more records will fall.”
