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.

EUROPE - Nissan announces sales for November for the Datsun and Nissan Brands.

Nissan announced today European sales for November of 57,963 units (Nissan and Datsun), representing a market share of 3.7 percent. Calendar sales to date total 672,053 units. Market share calendar year to date is 3.8 percent.
The United Kingdom remains at number one, as it has done most months and by some significant margin over #2 place Russia, with France, Germany and Italy finishing off the top five European markets.
The Crossover range takes the top three places again, with Qashqai, Juke and X-Trail beating all the other models, Micra, with a brand new model coming soon, and the compact MPV Note round off the top five.

It has to be noted, that Nissan has had a number of refreshed models over the last 12 months, which in turn have assisted to push sales ahead, 2017 should be a good year for the brand as its popular Micra gets an all new aggresive and sharp look, and does away with the blobby style it has had for some years.
Market share has stayed the same in the month, which shows that the entire market has moved ahead, even with over 3,000 extra sales it remains stagnant, and although some countries have seen sales drop, elsewhere they have countered this, and the trio of brands, Nissan, Datsun and Infiniti are holding their own.
