Half million car milestone for Nissan QASHQAI

Nissan QASHQAI UK production hits 500,000 mark.

Half million car milestone for Nissan QASHQAI - the Nissan QASHQAI crossover has broken a UK car production record.

It’s one of Australia’s top-selling and most impressive crossovers and now Nissan has paused to mark the production of the 500,000th Nissan QASHQAI in the UK.

Sold in the local market and exported to a number of countries, including Australia, the QASHQAI/UK production milestone marks a new record - the fastest ever UK-built vehicle to smash the half million production mark.

It’s taken just 21 months for the Nissan QASHQAI to mark half a million units with a new QASHQAI rolling off the production line every 62 seconds!

QASHQAI beat previous records set by the MK1 Ford Cortina, which took 34 months to hit the half million landmark, and the Austin/Morris 1100/1300 which reached the same total in 29 months.

Paul Willcox, Chairman of Nissan Europe, says the Nissan QASHQAI is going from strength to strength.

“Half a million QASHQAIs in just 21 months is an astonishing achievement and proof that the QASHQAI is hitting the spot with buyers.”
