Nissan is today marking the start of production of the new Juke at its Sunderland plant, following a £100 million investment. Designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, the new Juke has been developed specifically for European markets, with Sunderland the only production location for this second-generation compact crossover. Its launch comes almost 10 years after the original Juke’s daring styling broke the mold in the B-segment, and Nissan has raised the bar again, bringing new levels of technology and connectivity to the compact crossover category. Developed by Nissan’s European design and R&D teams in Paddington, London, and Cranfield, Bedfordshire, 70% of Juke production will be for the EU markets, with two thirds of its suppliers based in the EU.
isiting Sunderland plant today to oversee the final stages of preparation for the launch, Nissan Europe Chairman, Gianluca de Ficchy, said: “The new Juke represents a further £100m investment in our Sunderland plant and is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK for European customers.
