Next-Generation Nissan Juke Will Be Built In The UK

Nissan has announced that the second-generation Juke crossover will be built in Sunderland.

The automaker will invest approximately £100 million to build the upcoming Juke in Sunderland, UK’s biggest car plant. The new plans secure the future for both production lines in Sunderland as well as the jobs of 34,000 people currently employed by Nissan and its British suppliers beyond 2020.

“With the next generation Juke now confirmed for future production, customers can be assured that Nissan is going to remain the benchmark in the crossover segment for many years to come,” said Nissan Europe Chairman, Paul Willcox. “This announcement also gives security to our Sunderland plant beyond 2020, which the team has earned through many years of hard work and their ability to continually raise the bar on quality,” the executive added.

Nissan also said its European design team in Paddington, London, and European Engineering Headquarters in Cranfield, Bedfordshire will be “instrumental” in the development of the next-generation Juke, making sure that the model caters to European customer needs and taste.

The next-generation Nissan Juke is the first model confirmed for the Renault-Nissan Alliance CMF-B architecture. The Common Module Family (CMF) is an engineering architecture that drives synergies in all major areas, from purchasing to vehicle engineering and powertrains.

The Sunderland plant started manufacturing the current-generation Nissan Juke in 2010.
