April, too, gave the manufacturer its biggest EU market share yet, with 53,840 vehicles sold – a market share of 3.8 per cent. This also represents an increase of over 20 per cent compared with the same period the previous year.

Nissan vice president of sales operations Bernard Loire said, “All of our major European markets have shown an impressive year-on-year improvement in the January to April period, including Russia, UK and Spain where Nissan is now the top-selling Japanese brand.”
