Nissan suggests that its crossover line-up has ‘gone platinum’ with in excess of 1 million models from the Juke, Qashqai and Mk3 X-Path ranges offered in the United kingdom since 2007. 

No much less than 93 for every cent of people automobiles were manufactured in Britain at the firm’s Sunderland manufacturing plant. That provides up to a full of 932,938 British developed models acquiring houses with United kingdom customers in excess of the previous 14 decades. 

Released in 2007, the Qashqai – which will enter its third-generation with an all-new design rolling off the Sunderland generation line later on this calendar year – has amassed in excess of 620,000 British sales, with the second-generation design proving a substantial hit with Brits. 

No other automobile is presently developed in greater quantities in Britain and the Qashqai has been a fixture in the UK’s major ten very best-providing automobiles record, so it must be no surprise to see in excess of 373,000 Mk2 Qashqais have uncovered a location on United kingdom driveways. 

The smaller, supermini sized Juke crossover is also manufactured at the firm’s Sunderland plant, and has since amassed in excess of 310,000 sales since its introduction to the United kingdom marketplace in 2010. 

The greatest automobile in what Nissan deems it’s United kingdom ‘crossover’ array is the X-Path, which is developed in Japan. The third-generation design tends to make use of the same underpinnings uncovered below anything from the Qashqai to the Renault Megane family hatchback. Given that its introduction in 2014, in excess of sixty seven,000 third-generation X-Trails have been offered in Britain. Past X-Path generations were well-known below also, but Nissan isn’t including them in its ‘1m crossover sales’ calculation, presumably since it sees them as more off-highway focused SUVs alternatively than crossovers. 

Later this calendar year, the brand’s present line-up will be joined not just by an all-new edition of the Qashqai with hybrid electricity for the very first time, but also by an solely new proposition – an electric powered crossover identified as Ariya. The newcomer will be developed on the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi Alliance’s new CMF-EV system and capable of up to 310 miles on a solitary charge.
