Glyn Hopkin Nissan enjoys record year​

Glyn Hopkin Nissan has had another record year with over 30 vehicles sold every day, and with 13 dealerships across the South East, this success is set to carry on in 2016.

Reaching our target annual turnover of £400 million has come at ease thanks to a 15% rise in sales, with nearly 11,000 new car sales from January to the end of November 2015.

Nissan’s flagship SUV crossover, the Qashqai, remains as Nissan Glyn Hopkin’s best seller across all 13 sites, representing more than a third of all sales this year. With more than 4,000 units sold in 2015, Glyn Hopkin Nissan has achieved over 10 Qashqai sales every day. The second-generation Qashqai has become a popular choice in the UK, with over half a million units sold thanks to its elegant design, practicality and affordability.

Fraser Cohen, Managing Director of Glyn Hopkin has been “astounded by Glyn Hopkin's Nissan dealers” and that by October his “capable and committed team” had already “smashed the figures for the whole of 2014 put together.”

Green Revolution

Glyn Hopkin Nissan has experienced considerable interest in electric vehicles this year, with the LEAF and e-NV200 now accounting for one out of every 20 vehicles sold across the group.

Costing from just 2p per mile in equivalent fuel cost, the Nissan LEAF has become a huge success and has earned its place as Britain’s best-selling all-electric vehicle. With its practicality, zero tailpipe emissions, free road tax and zero congestion charge, the LEAF has become a desirable option for private and company car buyers alike.

The newest LEAF features extended 155 mile range and has been named Best Small Family Car at the Next Green Car Awards 2015, while the popular e-NV200 earned Nissan LCV Manufacturer of the Year and Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at the recent GreenFleet Awards 2015.

Juke in demand

Nissan’s sporty compact crossover, the Juke, has also become a popular hit among Glyn Hopkin customers, accounting for over a quarter of our Nissan sales in 2015.

That trend also looks set to continue with the introduction of the new, race-ready Nismo RS edition, and an exciting all-new Juke in 2016.

Since UK deliveries for Juke began five year ago, more than 150,000 units have been sold, with over 700,000 total sales across Europe, making it the continent’s best-selling compact crossover.

We opened our first Nissan showroom in London Road, Romford, Essex in January 1993 and expanded with a further 12 Nissan dealerships across London and the South-East. The newest additions were opened earlier this year, in East London and Cambridge, underlining us as one Nissan’s largest and most successful representatives in Europe. We also operate two of the exclusive, specially-equipped Nismo centres in the UK, offering Nissan performance models and tuning and styling products.
