The Qashqai is coming to North America, and a big reason for that is the model's extraordinary success in Europe. The model has become the highest-volume seller for the brand of all time with over 2,368,705 units sold in the last decade. All of those were built at Nissan's Sunderland plant in the UK.
This year Nissan will celebrate 30 years of manufacturing in the UK at their Sunderland facility. The factory currently builds the Qashwai, Juke, Leaf, Note and Infiniti Q30.The Nissan Qashqai has become the first car in UK history to go beyond two million units in such a brief interval. After all, they make around 1,200 Qashqai units every day, so it was a matter of time until the Japanese brand reached this milestone. On average, Nissan builds a Qashqai every 62 seconds. That means that 58 new Nissan Qashqai cars are built every hour.
