Nissan celebrates Qashqai record

Milestone for Nissan as 500,000th Qashqai rolls off the production line in Sunderland – in a record-breaking 21 months.

Nissan’s pioneering crossover has become the fastest ever UK-built vehicle to smash the half million production mark.

Since its start of production in January 2014, a new Qashqai has been built every 62 seconds on the Sunderland factory’s Line 1, with nearly 100,000 (20%) of these being delivered within the UK.

Today’s announcement also sees the Qashqai beat previous records set by the MK1 Ford Cortina, which took 34 months to hit the half million landmark, and the Austin/Morris 1100/1300 which reached the same total in 29 months.
