Nissan has recorded its highest ever fleet registrations in 2015, with 85,119 vehicles supplied to fleet customers last year.
The company supplied a record 74,768 passenger cars during 2015.
Up 18% on the 63,353 sales achieved in 2014, the volume gives the brand its highest ever share of the UK fleet market (5.68%) and ranks it seventh in the list of fleet vehicle manufacturers.
The brand registered 10,398 fleet vans during the calendar year – an increase of 24% on the 8,394 sales in 2014.
The Qashqai crossover remained Nissan’s most popular fleet model, with 33,628 registered during 2015 compared to 26,866 in 2014 (+25%).
The largest of Nissan’s crossover family, the X-Trail, also performed well with fleet registrations more than doubling to 4,580.
Fleet registrations of the all-electric Leaf were up 51% to 1,830 units and registrations of the e-NV200 almost trebling (281%) to 602 units.
Barry Beeston, director of corporate sales, said: “We have made significant advances during 2015, building on our outstanding product line-up and strengthening both our corporate sales team and our overall fleet proposition.”
“This includes the introduction of new systems and processes designed to ensure we are fully focused on the needs of our customers, both nationally and at a local level, and also a new fleet ‘promise’ that sets in stone commitments to our customers.”
