Nissan celebrates one millionth Juke
Eight years after it created the compact crossover segment, the one millionth Juke has rolled off the line at Nissan Sunderland Plant. On average, a brand new Juke is built at the plant every 105 seconds.
The 2018 Juke comes with a host of interior and exterior personalisation choices with more than 23,000 different versions of the latest Juke are available for customers across Europe.
The one millionth Juke built in Sunderland was a Tekna grade in Vivid Blue, the most recent colour to be added to the range.
Kevin Fitzpatrick, senior vice president manufacturing, supply chain management and purchasing, Nissan Europe, said, ‘Reaching the one million milestone is a fantastic achievement for any model.
‘Eight years ago we had never seen anything like the Juke before – it created an entirely new segment and brought a distinctive never-seen-before look to the market. Fast forward to today and we have one million customers and Juke remains the segment leader.’
Juke was the second crossover to be built at the plant, following the Qashqai, which went into production in 2006. More than three million Qashqai have been built in Sunderland, following Micra and Primera as models to have hit seven figures at the plant.
