Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Nissan announced today European sales for September of 78,192 units (Nissan and Datsun), representing a market share of 4.2 percent. Calendar sales to date total 559,155 units.
With the UK well and truly ahead as any other European market, it is no wonder that Nissan utilises the country to produce vehicles at its state of the art facility, producing not just Nissan, but the new Infiniti Q30/QX30 sub compact too.

The brand also had a hugely successful Paris Motor Show, with the world launch of the new Micra Supermini, at long last the car has gotten back to its roots and is designed with loads of flair and not like the last couple of models that have failed miserably to match the sales of the MKI and MK II
September highlights:
  • Sales in the UK totaled 29,229 units with a market share of 5.5 percent. Calendar year sales total 130,116 units.
  • Sales in Germany totaled 7,491 units with a market share of 2.4 percent marking the best September result since 2011 and Nissan in Germany is the best-selling Japanese brand. Calendar year sales to date total 60,520 units.
