This is according to the latest figures released by SMMT, the Society of Motor Manufacturing and Traders, which records the number of new car registrations in the UK.
Up until the end of February, Japanese multinational automaker Nissan was able to achieve sales figures of 13,273 units, the fourth highest figure out of all of the car marques.
This represented a massive improvement of 39.79 per cent when compared to the year to date figure from the end of February 2012, when a lesser 9,495 new Nissan vehicles were registered in the United Kingdom.
Staying with the year to date figures, Nissan also managed to claim a 6.31 per cent share of the automobile market which, again, was the fourth highest figure out of all the other car manufacturers selling in the UK market.
Nissan will be pleased at this figure as it marks an improvement over last February’s year to date market share figure, where the automotive giants obtained a smaller 4.98 per cent share of the UK car market.
In the month of February alone, a total of 3,796 new Nissan cars were registered in the UK, which was 18.26 per cent greater than last February’s figure of 3,210 units registered.
Furthermore, Nissan obtained 5.69 per cent of the monthly UK car market which, again, improves upon last February’s market share of 5.19 per cent.
Aiding Nissan’s monthly cause was the Nissan Qashqai and Juke models, which were the company’s highest selling vehicles in the UK markets.
The Nissan Qashqai managed to achieve sales of 1,847 units throughout the UK markets, registering 1,559 units alone in Britain. These figures helped the vehicle cement its place in the ‘top 10 new car registrations’ for all of the countries that make up the United Kingdom.
The Nissan Juke also managed to break into the ‘top 10’ lists in one of the countries, Northern Ireland, where a total of 101 new Juke vehicles were registered, compared to 131 Qashqai models in the same area.
Nissan will be hoping to further increase their sales and market share figures this year, with the company planning numerous releases for later on in 2013, including the new Nissan Note and Leaf models, both of which will be built at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, UK.
Furthermore, Nissan will be introducing an updated GT-R model for 2013, as well as preparing for the arrival of the Juke Nismo and the 370Z Nismo, later on in the year.
