Nissan Sunderland plant sets UK record

Nissan produced 480,485 vehicles at its Sunderland plant in 2011, up 14% from 2010 and a new record for a single UK car plant.

The growth was largely down to the success of the Qashqai models, of which just over 300,000 were made.

The crossover vehicle was the ninth best-selling car in the UK in the first 11 months of 2011, according to the SMMT, with 36,826 sold.
