At the end of June, Nissan Motor Company hit both a global sales record as well as market share achievement and it did so with some help from a particular compact crossover. Since its launch in 2010, the Juke has been blazing ahead in all markets and is a major contributing factor in Nissan’s worldwide growth as of late. In the three major markets – Japan, Europe and the U.S. – the turbocharged utility has seen healthy increases month after month and consistently sells more than 10,000 units with each flip of the calender.
“The Juke is one of the models to support the strong sales in Japan, the US and Europe – one of the sources of growth for those markets,” said Nissan’s Sales Executive Vice President Takao Katagiri. Last month, the automaker’s global sales figure of 447,000 units earned a solid record for the year. Compared to 2011, that number is an increase of 16.4 percent which proves that Nissan isn’t a company to be taken lightly. With vehicles like the Juke, which managed to jump 27 percent in the U.S. alone, the Japanese automaker is on par to continue to its recent streak of record-breaking months.
“Juke is one of the strong weapons for us to grow in Europe and other major regions,” said Katagiri.
