UK build and design new Nissan Qashqai
Nissan has given the nation a reason to get all patriotic after it announced the next Qashqai will not only be built here in Britain, but designed and engineered here too.
Carlos Ghosn, chief executive of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, told Prime Minister David Cameron that the next generation of the company’s hatchback crossover, a regular in Britain’s bestsellers lists, will be developed entirely in the UK and safeguard 6,000 jobs.
The new Qashqai represents a £192 million investment in Britain and is being funded entirely by Nissan. It will build on the success of the current Qashqai which is the highest-volume car produced in the UK with export levels of around 80 per cent.
The company’s UK plant, in Sunderland, has been producing cars since 1986 when it built the Bluebird, and is also lined up to build the LEAF electric car from 2013.
