According to Japanese carmaker Nissan, the very-popular Nissan Qashqai crossover will be replaced. The model is popular in Europe, just to be clear. Nissan will replace it with an all-new generation for next year. The carmaker scheduled its official debut for November this year. The new redesigned Nissan Qashqai will be available in different showrooms only next year and according to the carmaker, it will be very hard to recognize as it has been completely redesigned. Its look is different and so the manufacturer is assuming a lot of risk. What if the customers do not like it? Anyway, all this information came from Andy Palmer, head of global planning for Nissan. He declared that the model will receive a new modular platform which is set to underpin different Renault and Nissan models.
Here they will also include the next generation Megane hatchback. Even so, the Nissan Qashqai will be the first one to use it. According to the specialists, the model can also accommodate plug-in hybrid technology as well. This version of the mode will be launched, but only after it has established itself. To be more precise, this means after around one year. In conclusion, do not expect to see the plug-in hybrid in showrooms before 2015. The other engines included in the lineup are the 1.2-liter supercharged unit which actually replaces the current naturally aspirated 1.6-liter and also the 1.6-liter DCi diesel engine capable of generating 130 PS. This last one was revealed in several Renault models and also in the current Nissan Qashqai. The production process of the new model will stay in the UK and for sure, the carmaker will have a lot of success in terms of sales and this segment seems to keep its pace.
