Nissan sees year-on-year sales boost in April

Sales of Nissan vehicles during April 2010 have exceeded their levels from the corresponding period of 2009 thanks to improved demand.

New global data from the manufacturer has revealed that worldwide car sales for the month reached their highest April levels ever, with 307,010 vehicles sold.

The popularity of Nissan models in the UK and Europe played a key part in this, with sales increasing year-on-year thanks to the rising demand for models such as the Qashqai and Note, as well as the successful launch of the Pixo.

Nissan added that demand for the Qashqai has also led to an increase in production numbers, with 33,050 cars being manufactured in the UK during April 2010, up by 25 per cent compared to April 2009.

The company was not the only manufacturer to see improved fortunes in April, with the most recent Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders figures showing that UK car sales during the period were up for a tenth month in a row.
