Nissan will make the next Qashqai and XTrail in Sunderland

Postby Rob » Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:15 am

Nissan Motor Company Ltd. today announced, following its Executive Committee meeting, that it will produce the next Qashqai and will add production of the next X-Trail model at its Sunderland, U.K. Plant.

Nissan’s decision follows the U.K. government’s commitment to ensure that the Sunderland plant remains competitive. As a result, Nissan will increase its investment in Sunderland, securing and sustaining the jobs of more than 7,000 workers at the plant.

“I am pleased to announce that Nissan will continue to invest in Sunderland. Our employees there continue to make the plant a globally competitive powerhouse, producing high-quality, high-value products every day,” said Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of Nissan. “The support and assurances of the U.K. government enabled us to decide that the next-generation Qashqai and X-Trail will be produced at Sunderland. I welcome British Prime Minister Theresa May’s commitment to the automotive industry in Britain and to the development of an overall industrial strategy.”

Nissan’s Sunderland plant opened in 1986 and has produced almost 9 million cars since. One in three British cars are produced in Sunderland, which is the UK’s largest car plant of all time. In addition, 80% of production from Sunderland is exported to over 130 international markets. More than 2 million Qashqai’s have been built in Sunderland in less than 10 years. In addition to the 7,000 direct employees at Sunderland, the plant supports a further 28,000 British automotive supply chain jobs. To date, Nissan has invested more than £3.7 billion in Sunderland.

That is a sigh of relief for the Nissan Sunderland Workers and great news for it's future growth, not only the QQ but also the X-Trail. So it looks like the "Sun" report was spot on - Dave ;)

Do not Forget that we are talking about Renault / Nissan (now Mitsubishi also) and both companies share parts and if you are a QQ Owner then you are sitting and riding around on Renault parts now. How do you think the Renault Kadjar appeared on the Market so quickly, it is based on the QQ - Dave ;)

Sorry, but this article was really aimed at the future of Sunderland and specifically the J11 & X-Trail which is the latest version QQ. We have a J11 and had some faults that have been corrected but after 2 years still enjoying the QQ, I have never driven a J10 - Dave ;)

yes my friend i gathered that.. What im trying to say is if they keep making the QQ X Trial from all these cheap tat Renault parts then whether they are made in Sunderland or Tim buck too won't make a jot worth of difference!!!
Yes at least jobs will be safe but they won't if people stop buying them because they are not living upto the the Japanese quality that most of us expected to be buying!!!
I had a 15 year old Toyota yaris T Sport as my little run around while i was looking for the right model QQ and the quality difference my god!!! its not even funny :roll:
