The debut of the new 60-registration plate has further boosted Nissan sales, giving the brand a highly successful September.
Key to that success has been the continued demand for the innovative Nissan QASHQAI. When standard and +2 body styles are combined, sales reached 5,641 units for the month.
This means the Nissan QASHQAI is now the fourth best-selling vehicle in the C-segment - ahead of both the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series - and the nation's 10th top-seller overall in 2010.
The critically acclaimed compact crossover Nissan Juke is also proving popular with buyers looking for something different in the B-segment. It has sold 1,617 units during its debut week in September 2010.
Sales of the current Nissan Micra remain strong. 4,902 of the iconic supermini found new homes during September 2010, up 6% on the same period last year. Given that the Government Scrappage Scheme was in full flow last year and order books for the all New Nissan Micra open on 18th October 2010, it's an amazing performance.
All of the above sales successes have pushed Nissan up to fourth place for retail sales in September 2010 and the seventh most popular car brand overall. Taking performance over the last six months, Nissan is the UK's number one Asian car brand.
Nissan's UK MD, Paul Willcox commented: "September's sales figures are a tribute to the professionalism and dedication of our dealer network. The fact that QASHQAI continues to be a spectacular performer is no surprise - customers love its practicality and dynamic driving experience and it looks like Juke is heading the same way."
