2014 Nissan Qashqai production is 3 times higher than its predecessor’s

The new generation of the Nissan Qashqai has a three times higher production than the one of its predecessor as the company is so confident in the crossover.

Nissan has increased the production of the new Qashqai generation to three times that of the first generation crossover and only in Sunderland, England, the company can produce up to 300,000 units of the Qashqai annually. When it was launched back in 2007, the first-gen Qashqai was assembled in 100,000 units every year and that number was soon expanded. Nissan has produced 2 million first-gen Qahsqais globally from 2007 to 2013 and off those, 1.7 million have rolled off the line in the UK.

The 2014 Nissan Qashqai has received a new entry-level engine, in the shape of the 1.2 liter DIG-T. This petrol burner is producing a total output of 115 HP (85 kW) and it has a peak torque of 190 Nm (140 lb-ft). This is being followed by the larger 1.6 liter DIG-T, with its 150 HP (110 kW) and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque, while diesel lovers can order the 110 HP (81 kW) 1.5 dCi or the larger and more popular 1.6 dCi with its 130 HP (96 kW). The new Qashqai generation has received a total redesigned body, a new cabin and higher quality materials.
