Nissan produced 2 millions Qashqai in less than 8 years
New production record for Nissan. Never in its history, the Japanese carmaker had assembled 2 million units of a single model in less than eight years since the official launch.
The record is due to the excellent results of the Qashqai that from December 2006 to date has reached the prestigious milestone of 2 million units built at the Sunderland plant in the UK.
Obviously very satisfied Paul Willcox, Nissan Europe Chairman, according to which the Qashqai is rising to new technological values, image and efficiency of the entire Nissan range in Europe.
The two millionth Qashqai to roll off the production line was a magnetic red model destined to a British customer.
Of the Qashqais made in Sunderland since December 2006, 85% have been exported to 132 international markets, from the Congo to Qatar.
The Japanese manufacturer has invested over 500 million pounds to upgrade a factory that employs about 11,000 people, directly supporting the local and national economies.
Qashqai is increasingly approaching the record production of the Micra that was assembled in the plant in Sunderland in 2,368,704 units in the period between 1992 and 2010.
