The Nissan Qashqai has topped sales figures, making the Qashqai Nissan’s highest-volume car ever in Europe.

The Nissan Qashqai has reached 2,368,705 units, overtaking the Micra which currently held the record with 2,368,704. 1,200 Qashqai's are produced every day at Nissan's Sunderland plant which is pretty impressive, in less than 10 years Nissan have sold over two million Qashqai's, no other car in the history of the UK motor industry has done this before in such a short period of time.

“The Qashqai created an entirely new segment when it was first launched and continues to set the standard in crossovers, supporting a record period of growth for Nissan in Europe.

"The Micra is an iconic model for Nissan in Europe, made for 18 years in our Sunderland plant. To overtake it in half the time shows just how quickly our European customers have taken Qashqai to their hearts." Says Colin Lawther, Nissan's Senior Vice President for Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management in Europe.

The second-generation Nissan Qashqai, launched in September 2015 has been one of the fastest selling UK-built vehicles, with a new Qashqai being built every 62 seconds at Nissan's Sunderland plant.

Another feature that might appeal to a wider audience is that from next year the Nissan Qashqai will get autonomous driving capabilities. This was announced at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month where Nissan said the next Qashqai will feature 'Piloted Drive' technology that will enable the car to drive autonomously in a single lane and can cope in heavy traffic conditions. The single lane autonomous driving is just the first of many features to come with the new Nissan Qashqai as Nissan announced more complex and advanced features will be added in the future.
