It looks like Nissan is killing it in Europe right now. After launching no fewer than a dozen vehicles in 2014, Nissan and Datsun sales in Europe totaled 724,613 vehicles, which is 13.2% higher than 2013’s total. Nissan also got a bigger slice of the pie with 4% market share compared to 3.7% in 2013.

Of the 12 new products that Nissan introduced to the European market, it introduced two new crossovers and a new compact car that brought it into completely new segments and undoubtedly helped improve that impressive market share.

The all-electric Nissan LEAF has enjoyed sales success in North America as well as Europe, with over 15,000 LEAFs sold in Europe last year.
