Nissan to commit to making new Qashqai and Juke electric models in Sunderland
Nissan is to commit to making future electric versions of its two best selling cars in Sunderland. The Japanese car maker will announce on Friday that its new electric Qashqai and Juke models will be made at the site, helping to preserve 6,000 jobs. Nissan is the only carmaker in the UK with its own dedicated battery plant located close to the car plant. Nissan began producing electric Juke and Qashqai cars in the North East last year and has already committed to producing the successor to its Leaf electric car at its factory in Sunderland. In September, Nissan said it would only manufacture electric vehicles by 2030, despite the government postponing a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars that had been due to come in that year to 2035.
