Imagine instead. Initially, only the Bluebird was built there, and each model required more than 22 hours of work! Today, a Qashqai rolls off the assembly line in just over 8 hours. An efficiency which allowed Sunderland to produce its 11 millionth vehicle in 2023 (a Qashqai e-Power intended for the French market). Which corresponds to an average rate of one car every two minutes for 37 years! This makes it the fastest factory in the UK. With more than 6,000 employees on site, Sunderland also makes Nissan the largest automotive employer in England. And the arrival of the EV36Zero project (a new electric model, a Gigafactory for battery production, and an electricity network entirely powered by renewable energies) ensures an equally prosperous and responsible future. Go Sunderland!
To sum up
This year, Nissan will celebrate 90 years of passion and innovation, driven by a DNA: “doing what others dare not do”. Since its founding in 1933, this bold spirit has inspired Nissan and generations of employees to push the boundaries of innovation – enriching people’s lives with pioneering vehicles and technologies to create a cleaner, safer, more sustainable world. inclusive.
