More than 3 million Qashqai’s have been built.

Nissan Europe has capped a record-breaking 2017 with the production of three millionth Nissan Qashqai which was in the U.K. Sunderland Plant, in just over 10 years since the Nissan Qashqai was released.

The U.K Sunderland Plant had the best ever full year in European sales. They have made over 762,574 vehicles across Datsun and Nissan vehicles. The Nissan Qashqai helped to achieve the landmark achievement, the sales have increased 1.2% and the Sunderland Plant produced a record 346,856 units 265,520 of which were sold in Europe.

This helped Nissan achieve 3.7% European market share. The Nissan Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan history winning more than 80 awards and having a major refresh released in 2014.

At the heart of the Qashqai’s appeal for more than 10 years has been its position as the ultimate urban crossover. It successfully blends the practicality and desirability of an SUV with the footprint, driving dynamics and running costs of a hatchback.

Paul Willcox, chairman of Nissan Europe, said: "2017 was another record-breaking year for Nissan Europe, and 2018 has started the same way. The Qashqai’s achievement of reaching 3,000,000 vehicles produced in 10 years is a significant milestone, while the October launch of the new and eagerly awaited Nissan LEAF has seen record-breaking pre-orders of one every 10 minutes.”

Willcox said Nissan expects to see further records broken in 2018, with total industry sales in Europe and Russia rising about 2% to 20.2 million vehicles. Nissan expects the European market to grow 1% to 18.4 million vehicles and Russia’s to increase by 7% to 1.8 million.

To mark the Qashqai’s achievement, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Nissan divisional vice president for European manufacturing, said: “Nissan’s Sunderland factory in the U.K. has celebrated many remarkable achievements, but in the plant’s 30-year history, there hasn’t been another car like the Qashqai.

“The Qashqai was the original urban crossover, and in the decade since we started production, the skill and expertise of our workforce here in Sunderland, combined with the enhanced design and interior quality improvements, have maintained the Qashqai’s leadership of the segment.”

Last year, the Qashqai was refreshed with upgrades focused on four areas – a contemporary new exterior design, higher levels of interior quality, improved driving performance, and the addition of new Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies to deliver even greater levels of customer comfort, reassurance and trust.

In October 2016, Nissan announced that production of an all-new, third-generation Qashqai will also be at Sunderland.

The Sunderland Plant began production of the next-generation Nissan LEAF in December, it also makes the Juke crossover models. With more than 30 years of success, it’s the biggest U.K. car plant of all time.

Ancaster Nissan South Croydon were fantastic because of the excellent level of service provided by Edward Suarez. He was an exceptional salesman, who gave me all of the information I needed to know, dealt with paperwork efficiently and overall provided great customer service.

I'd definitely recommend Ancaster Hyundai Croydon to friends and family because they are a fantastic team. They not only work hand in hand with each other to get you through the process of buying a car, they are honest and treat you as a valued customer should be treated. Their customer service is phenomenal. They are at your assistance at all times and nothing is too much for them. I also serviced my previous car with them for the last 2 years and have always found their customer service to be 10/10. This prompted me to buy my latest car i30 from them because I knew that the team would guide me safely through it. I trust them and they did not disappointment me. I am rest assured that I will continue to do business with this team for many years to come because having a great car with a great team behind it is a great recipe for a great relationship for the future. Each and every member of the team has their great qualities to give a quality service.
