British models attract those buying a car from Nissan

Wed, 08 Jul 2009
The majority of people buying a car from Nissan last month opted for British-built models, it has been revealed.

According to the manufacturer, some 83 per cent of new auto sales in June were for vehicles produced at its Sunderland factory.

Of the customers opting for such models, a third drove away in the Qashqai or Qashqai+2.

The next most popular car was the Micra - which accounted for a quarter of sales - while 23 per cent of buyers decided on the Note and ten per cent went for the Pixo.

Overall year-on-year sales for the group were up nine per cent and the company claimed this was quite some achievement given the current economic conditions.

Managing director Paul Willcox stated: "Everyone here at Nissan is proud to be one of the few brands to have made positive growth in June."

In other motoring news, the manufacturer recently announced it would be launching a limited edition 370Z Yellow in the UK in September.
