2014 Nissan Juke now in production in Europe!

The new improved Nissan Juke is now in production in Europe, the launch of the new Juke completes the total refresh of the plant’s product line-up in just over a year, following the start of production of Nissan’s all-electric LEAF, the new Note and new Qashqai in Sunderland.

It also coincides with a new recruitment drive for maintenance professionals to support a third year of 500,000 output at the plant, with fifty new posts available for experienced technicians to support high volumes across vehicle, powertrain and battery facilities. Nissan’s Vice President for Manufacturing in the UK, Kevin Fitzpatrick said “the launch of the new Juke further strengthens Nissan’s command of the crossover market. With a new Qashqai and now a new Juke in production at Sunderland, the crossover has become part of this plant’s DNA. This significantly revised new Juke is another example of how we never stand still at Nissan, so we are looking for experienced maintenance professionals who can help us build on our recent achievements and support the efficient running of the plant.”
