    Nissan Reinforces Growing Fleet Stature

Nissan is a growing force in the fleet-sales car market and that fact will be reinforced at the 2015 Company Car in Action (CCIA) event with a sizeable presence.

In the 25th anniversary of the event, Nissan’s corporate sales team will showcase the product line-up and put its fleet credentials on the table.

CCIA, held this year on June 16th-17th at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedford, has established a reputation as the UK’s best and largest arrive-and-drive event and has won support from key motor manufacturers and contract hire and leasing companies. It’s a must-attend event in the fleet sector, with 26 brands on display and almost 300 vehicles available to test drive.

Visitors, who must pre-book, get the chance to see and compare all the cars in one place, evaluate models through test drives, meet suppliers, network with fleet professionals and enhance their knowledge of low-emissions vehicles.

This year, no fewer than ten Nissan models will be made available for visitors to test drive around the track at Millbrook. They include the Japanese firm’s selection of crossovers, the Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail, plus the Pulsar family hatch.

But Nissan is also a trailblazer in ecological electric vehicles, and delegates will be able to discover more about the technology behind the cars. Available for test driving will be the all-electric Nissan Leaf, which recorded an impressive 1,200 fleet registrations last year. Visitors can also put its bigger brother, the e-NV200, through its paces, in both panel van and Combi variants.

Nissan will come to CCIA 2015 after a record year for UK fleet sales. In the last year, Nissan has increased its company-car standing, with nearly 64,000 vehicles registered to fleet customers. That’s a rise of nearly 14% on 2013. Nissan is now in with a bullet in sixth place in the country’s fleet-car sales charts.

Corporate Sales Director for Nissan Motors (GB) Barry Beeston said: “Nissan has made great strides in improving its fleet proposition in recent years and we now have one of the strongest and most compelling offerings in the marketplace.

“That development will continue and we look forward to meeting many fleet operators and business car drivers at CCIA and telling them how we’re best placed to meet their needs.”

Any fleet operators interested in taking part in CCIA 2015 can register to take part at

In the meantime, firms and individuals can test drive any car from the Nissan range at the Howards Group showroom in Weston-Super-Mare.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
