Nissan Qashqai reaches 100,000 sales milestone

Japanese car manufacturer Nissan has announced that it has sold more than 100,000 of its Qashqai vehicles in Europe.

Buyers across the continent seem to be happy with the new vehicle, commenting that the compact crossover brings "something new" to the market, the firm stated.

"Nissan Europe’s product planners identified an opportunity in the market to design and develop a vehicle which provided more dynamic design, without the perceived aggression of a compact SUV," said the company.

Indeed, sales figures were pushed over the boundary by strong performances in the UK, Russia and Italy over November.

These three markets saw 17,554, 15,376 and 10,746 models picked up by consumers respectively.

Nissan stated that demand has been so high that it had to increase production at its Sunderland plant by 20 per cent in June.

Meanwhile, Jalopnik claims that Nissan will not be taking part in any motorsports activities in the US in 2008.
