Nissan will be increasing its production of the ever popular Qashqai compact crossover in an attempt to meet the demand.
Currently produced at its Sunderland plant on Line 1 alongside the all-electric Leaf, the Qashqai will be built on Line 2, joining the Juke, Note and Infiniti Q30, after an investment of £22 million (R485 million) in all areas. Production at the second line is scheduled to commence by year’s end.
Vehicles like the Qashqai are designed, engineered and manufactured in the United Kingdom and are available in over 130 markets worldwide. The Qashqai is also also assembled in St. Petersburg, Russia, and in the Dongfeng-Nissan Huadu plant in China.
