Nissan has announced the delivery of the 100,000th Note model, just over a year after the vehicle was first launched in Europe.
This milestone means that the Note is the third most popular car in its segment in Europe, ahead of other widely-chosen options such as the Renault Modus, Honda Jazz and Fiat Idea.
A third of all people who buy the MPV are women, rising to 40 per cent in the UK, according to Nissan and over half are under 50 years old.
The manufacturer states that these statistics, suggesting a fairly even demographic mix, are in line with its original assumptions that the Note would be a central car within households, to be used every day and by the whole family.
While family cars are typically not judged on their performance, Nissan claims that the Note is still a "dynamic, fun-to-drive" vehicle.
Buyers of the MPV have also reportedly praised the Note for its practicality and spaciousness, with its offering of the same rear passenger legroom as an Audi A6 or BMW 5-Series as well as one of the largest boot capacities in its class.
The most popular colour choice for the MPV is silver grey, while other shades such as ‘cafe latte’ and ‘intense blue’ have also been in demand.
