The Nissan Qashqai has reaffirmed its status as Ireland’s best-selling car and the best-selling crossover of all time.
Demand for the car has been exceptional throughout the first six months of the year with 2,877 new car buyers making it their car of choice, according to figures for the 191 sales period.
“Time and time again the Nissan Qashqai continues to be the most popular choice of car model amongst new car buyers in Ireland. That is because it is a true all-rounder, offering the best design, spec and value for money on the market. People also see it for what it is – the original and best-selling crossover of all time,” said James McCarthy, CEO of Nissan Ireland.
Nissan has sold more than 50,000 units of the car since its launch over 10 years ago and buoyant sales throughout 2019 have helped Nissan to increase its share of the new car market to 3.56% up to the end of June.
Reputation and quality
“The reputation and quality of the Nissan Qashqai is unquestioned by Irish car buyers. They know what to expect from a Qashqai and it delivers on all fronts with a choice of petrol and diesel engines across the range,” said James McCarthy, CEO of Nissan Ireland.
“Ten years after its launch, the Nissan Qashqai continues to pioneer the way with intelligent driving technologies like Intelligent Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control and Intelligent Lane Departure Warning along with driver awareness technologies like Blind Spot Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and an Adaptive Front Lighting System,” he added.
Customers have also been attracted by the car’s easy connectivity to their smartphone which provides them with access to their music on the move and to their Facebook newsfeed, tweets and TripAdvisor tips while stationary.
“Nissan believes that everyone has a right to an exciting car no matter how much they pay. We are transforming the way drivers interact with their car. The Nissan Qashqai is Ireland’s favourite car and the ideal partner, increasing safety, control and comfort for drivers,” said Mr McCarthy.
As the car industry shifts its focus to the 192 sales period Nissan is giving new car buyers the opportunity to avail of up to €5,500 scrappage on their old car when they buy a 192 Nissan before July 31, 2019.
Nissan has also lowered its PCP finance rate making it more affordable to own a brand new Nissan. The entire Nissan passenger range is now available at just 3.9% APR. This offer also ends on July 31, 2019.
