The next-generation Nissan Qashqai electric car will be designed and built in the UK, and the company is aiming for it to be priced the same as its current combustion engine version, reports Autocar.
The new model will be developed at Nissan's UK design studio in London, and will be inspired by the Hyper Urban concept, which was recently shown at the Tokyo motor show.
The concept's bold and angular exterior styling will continue for the production model, though the radical interior will be toned down somewhat.
Nissan currently offers Qashqai models with gasoline and hybrid engines. But the next-generation version, due in the second half of this decade, will be offered only as an electric vehicle.
