Nissan records best-ever fleet sales results in 2012
Total car fleet sales rose from 47,877 in 2011 to 50,990 in 2012, underpinned by a 114%surge in Juke sales year on year to take the crossover vehicle up to 10,421 fleet units sold in 2012.
Qashqai continued to be a strong seller with fleet sales reaching 27,865 to make up 50% of total Nissan car fleet sales. Elsewhere, the LEAF gained momentum in the corporate sector with sales rising 168% year on year to 582 units.
Nissan also performed strongly in the LCV arena, with the NV200 posting fleet sales figures of 2,796 for 2012, a rise of 68% on 2011.
‘Given the current challenging economic climate, these results are an excellent achievement,’ explained Jon Pollock, Nissan’s corporate sales director.
‘In 2012 Juke really came into its own while Qashqai remained a compelling proposition for fleets. Overall a strong performance that provides a platform for an even stronger 2013,’ he added.
