Nissan Qashqai Clocked up Two Million Units in Record Time
The British-built Nissan Qashqai hits more than two million unit-sales in just eight years of production. It is an event which marks a highly significant stage in the fast-progressive development of Nissan.
The unquestioned style, technology, design and level of performance help Nissan move from one strong point to another. With this manufacturing milestone now, Qashqai sets a remarkable year for the automotive company, thus polishing even more its marvelous reputation. The launch of the new generation model in January and winning What Car? magazine's coveted Car of the Year, as well as Tow Car's 'Car of the Year', ebay customers' 'New Car of the Year' and the Prize for Quality from prestigious Spanish business magazine Ejecutivos all add up quite some weight and importance to the successful 2014 of the motor company.
The two million customers and their obvious interest in the brand are clear testimony for their loyalty and trust in Nissan's productions. The high sales prove that the company continues to evolve, develop and accomplish results which are better than expected. What is more, according to the UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP; "Nissan is one of the driving forces behind the UK's world-renowned automotive industry."
