Nissan decided to postpone the production of the popular third generation Qashqai cross-country at a later date. This information was shared by the Financial Times on Monday, September 7, based on several sources.

As they emphasized, the serial production of the car will begin only in April 2021 at a car factory in Sunderland, UK. This plant will assemble the machine for the European market. At the same time, according to sources, initially the Japanese concern was going to start mass production of the model in October this year. There is no official confirmation of this information yet.

According to the interlocutors of the publication, the postponement of the production of Qashqai is due to the coronavirus pandemic and the financial difficulties that have arisen because of it. In addition, the sources believe that the new production start date will provide the Japanese company with an opportunity to adjust its own plans if the UK does not strike a deal with the EU after Brexit.

It is assumed that the novelty of the Japanese corporation will be offered not only with classic, but also with hybrid power units. At the same time, in the latter, the 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbo engine will be used only as a generator to recharge the batteries.

In addition, it was recently noted that the Japanese company Nissan announced new models for the Beijing Auto Show. It should be emphasized that there will be two high-profile novelties at the stand of the Japanese car manufacturer.
