The Qashqai is a compact crossover SUV built by the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan. The Qashqai was sold under the name badge Dualis in Japan and Australia. It was named after a group of people who live in the central mountains of South Western Iran.
A first-generation was created in 2006 with the concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Sales started in February 2007 with the target of 100,000 units to be sold annually. It was intended to appeal to customers who wanted a more dynamic alternative to the cumbersome SUVs available at the time.
In terms of size, it sits just under the X-Trail and almost replaces the slightly smaller Almera. The vehicle was received extremely well which translated into 200,000 units sold per year, double the original target. Sales were so good that Nissan sold 1.24 million vehicles in Europe alone within its first 7 years. All cars were manufactured at the Nissan Motor Manufacturing Plant UK, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
The second generation came out in 2013 and was entirely larger than its predecessor. Built on the new CMF-CD platform shared with the X-Trail and Renault Kadjar, the Qashqai won ‘What Car’s’ car of the year in 2014. The engine variations were 1.6-liter petrol, 1.5-liter turbodiesel, 1.2-liter petrol turbocharged engine and 2-liter petrol. The Qashqai broke records by reaching half a million sales faster than any other vehicle sold in the UK.
The third generation (2021) again was larger but due to the use of lighter parts weighed less than the previous model. Nissan created new mild-hybrid engines for the Qashqai, a 1.3 turbo petrol and an e-power hybrid powertrain.
