Nissan says that its crossover line-up has ‘gone platinum’ with around 1 million designs from the Juke, Qashqai and Mk3 X-Trail ranges offered in the Uk given that 2007.
No fewer than ninety three per cent of people cars ended up produced in Britain at the firm’s Sunderland manufacturing plant. That adds up to a full of 932,938 British developed designs obtaining residences with Uk consumers around the earlier 14 many years.
Released in 2007, the Qashqai – which will enter its 3rd-era with an all-new product rolling off the Sunderland generation line afterwards this year – has amassed around 620,000 British gross sales, with the second-era product proving a massive strike with Brits.
No other car is at this time developed in higher quantities in Britain and the Qashqai has been a fixture in the UK’s major ten best-providing cars list, so it should really be no surprise to see around 373,000 Mk2 Qashqais have found a spot on Uk driveways.
The lesser, supermini sized Juke crossover is also produced at the firm’s Sunderland plant, and has given that amassed around 310,000 gross sales given that its introduction to the Uk market place in 2010.

Since its introduction in 2014, around 67,000 3rd-era X-Trails have been offered in Britain. Preceding X-Trail generations ended up well known below too, but Nissan isn’t which include them in its ‘1m crossover sales’ calculation, presumably because it sees them as additional off-street centered SUVs fairly than crossovers.
Later this year, the brand’s recent line-up will be joined not just by an all-new version of the Qashqai with hybrid energy for the to start with time, but also by an completely new proposition – an electric powered crossover referred to as Ariya.
