Nissan offers 1.0 per cent finance
Special 1.0 per cent finance deal from Nissan Australia, but for one week only
6 Jul 2012
NISSAN Australia will next week offer a super-low 1.0 per cent finance rate across its vehicle range as it attempts to back-up record-breaking end-of-financial-year sales in June.
The 1.0 per cent comparison rate will be available for just seven days, from July 9-15, and will be offered through Nissan Australia’s in-house financial services arm.
The campaign marks a continuation of the company’s aggressive volume push in Australia as it seeks to overtake Mazda and Hyundai and claim the number one full-importer crown.
Nissan Australia sold 8330 units in June, its highest figure since the closure of its local manufacturing facilities in 1992 and a substantial 30.7 per cent higher than the same month last year.
VFACTS figures show that last month was the highest-selling on record, with 112,566 new vehicles shifted out of showroom doors, largely thanks to the traditional end-of-financial-year spike and healthier supply of cars sourced from Japan and Thailand after last year’s natural disasters.
Nissan’s half-year growth was 17.4 per cent over the same period last year and could increase even further with the addition of key new models over the next eighteen months, including Almera, Pulsar, Patrol and Altima.
Nissan Australia CEO Bill Peffer, who took the helm in February, said the 1.0 per cent finance deal showed the company would not be slowing down after the June rush.
“Following a record sales month for Nissan in June, this finance deal outlines our dedication to offering car buyers maximum value,” he said.
“We are not relaxing after the traditional end-of-financial-year activity. Everyone at Nissan is working hard to deliver for our customers and ‘The Big One’ is a great example of this.
“Nissan is well on the way to meeting our target of becoming Australia’s number one importer with record-breaking months and some great product still to come.
“The Big One is a fantastic opportunity for consumers to drive away from one of our dealers in a brand new Nissan and we are excited to be offering this unbeatable deal.”
Nissan Financial Services was launched in 2008, making the Japanese company one of the few in Australia with a dedicated in-house finance division.
