    Nissan Sunderland Plant is marking the start of production of the third-generation Qashqai with a renewed pledge to inspire future generations of manufacturing talent.

    Following a £400m investment, the latest version of the segment-defining crossover is now rolling off the plant’s production Line One, as the plant celebrates 35 years of manufacturing in the UK.

    Qashqai represents one in five of all cars built in Britain since its launch 14 years ago. Key investments have included a £52m second extra-large press line and scrap recycling system called the Cyclone, which allows Qashqai to become the plant’s first model built largely from aluminium. Other new facility investments include 117 new robots for the plant’s Body Shop, working with both aluminium and the new ultra-high tensile steel that helps gives Qashqai its best-in-class safety performance.
