Nissan Qashqai Celebrates One-Millionth Milestone

Nissan is celebrating the production of its one-millionth Nissan Qashqai.

Nissan is celebrating the production of its one-millionth Nissan Qashqai. This remarkable milestone was reached exactly four years, six months, and twenty-three days after production started. No other British-built car has reached the million-mark so quickly. On average, twelve-hundred Qashqais are manufactured every day - which equals one for every minute the factory is open. When I first saw it there were literally twenty in the world.

Nissan Vice President for Manufacturing in the UK, Kevin Fitzpatrick, said: “The Nissan Qashqai has been a phenomenal success since its start of production just four and a half years ago. Qashqai was a real crossover pioneer and producing one million in such a short space of time is a fantastic achievement, not just by staff at the Sunderland Plant, but also by the designers and engineers who developed such a popular car and our dealer network who have helped to generate such high demand.”

The one-millionth Nissan Qashqai will soon be on display at the London O2 Arena. It is a 2.0-litre diesel TEKNA model, finished in silver. In due course, one lucky motorist will win this landmark machine – and no doubt enjoy its numerous strengths. These include the: rock-solid handling, robust construction, generous equipment specification, sensible running costs, and family-focussed practicality. No wonder this thing sells like sliced bread.
