The Nissan Qashqai is the product star of the signature Japanese in Europe and part of the world. There’s no denying that returned to life and profitability to Nissan (in Europe) after the failure of the Almera. In addition, and according to the general public, you have the honor of being the model who invented the concept of SUV or all “modern” way.
When the brand it launched to the market decided that are manufactured in the plant that have in Sunderland, United Kingdom. This factory is the more big of the country, and an of the more modern. However, its continuity in time each day is more in question. The reason is simple and easy; United Kingdom voted yes to the Brexit and if the European Union punished the country Nissan could leave very injured with the measure.
The Brexit has done that they can modify the conditions for the export of products manufactured in the British Islands to the rest of the European Union. According to Carlos Ghosn Nissan is not asking privileges to the British Government to maintain production in its factories, however, they would not lose competitiveness when it comes to manufacture and sell its models.
If the accounts do not fail the next generation of the Qashqai should reach the market between the years 2018 to 2020 and the brand as it is deciding where could manufacture. If the Brexit not had triumphed very probably would continue being in Sunderland, however to avoid possible problems Nissan is deciding on what plant European could manufacture is this next generation.
According to Carlos Ghosn, this decision would have urgently since they would have to adapt the plant chosen to manufacture the model at a time near-record. Therefore, in November or December of this year we could know in what country European is will manufacture the new generation of the SUV more sold. Let us hope that they remember Spain and Barcelona.
