India might be one of them, having seen some Indian market SUV's online, I think this sort of fits into the demographic over there, China might be another one.
Very true, not a fair comparison, best to compare that to something similar and much more in line.Hard to compare when America is one of the largest market for pickup trucks.
Not yet popular in America, but the segment it's in is popular.Would be interesting to see them do this for America to see where the qashqai is most popular.
What indicators have you noticed that makes you say that? If you have nothing to back it up, that's just your opinion.Funny how its so popular in Britain because I don't believe that it will be nearly as popular in North America. Maybe that's due to taste, or perhaps it is due to more competition. Just funny how things can work like that.
you're also a bit uninformed.Well, firstly, we know that people buy tons of pickup trucks in North America and that isn't the case in the UK. Second, you can look at the segment that the Qashqai would be competing in in North America and its hard to believe that the Qashqai will overtake the models that currently are at the top of the sales chart.
I do not think that the Qashqai is going to be selling 10s of thousands of vehicles with the competition that exists and it being a newcomer.
I'd say it's an informed opinion.
You're a bit feisty, aren't you?
First of all, I find the way you respond to be quite rude. We can have a discussion without belittling each other. So please save you attitude.you're also a bit uninformed.
The pickup truck Qashqai ramble has next to NO bearing... See people who buy pickup trucks don't cross shop them with CUV's... but sometimes they do cross shop them for their wives.
See it's not a zero sum game. Hoseholds have multiple cars for multiple reasons...
But lets get to the uninformed part.
The Qashqai does not compete with the CR-V, Nissan has bigger SUV's for that. It competes with the Juke and the HR-V and the TRAX and the CR-V. Nissans aim is the Honda.
See the chart you used also lists a certain Nissan Rogue, in third place, short 5,000 units from the undisputed segment champ... Which should have been the clue that you were wrong.
Double, your chart proves that Nissan can and will build vehicles that appeal to American tastes, the Rogue or X-Trail globally is a extremely popular and successful model...
I'd say it's not an informed opinion.
