Six million cars from Nissan Sunderland
It reached the milestone this month and looks set to be the most productive car factory in the UK for the 14th year in a row by the end of 2011.
Last year the factory built nearly one in five of all cars manufactured in the UK. In total, 423,262 rolled off the line – made up of the Note, Juke, Micra and Qashqai – with 81% exported to overseas markets.
In 2013, it will start production of the all-electric Leaf.
