Nissan Qashqai range gets improved CO2, mpg and BIK

Nissan Qashqai models specified with 18” alloy wheels will now benefit from factory-fitted low resistance tyres, reducing CO2 and therefore company car tax.

The improved efficiency and reduced cost of ownership costs can save fleets up to £130 in VED payments on some models.

All Qashqais equipped with 18” alloys gain a 1% BIK improvement. On selected models this means BIK is as low as 19%, with combined fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg.

Kieran McMenamin, category manager for Qashqai at Nissan said: “Qashqai has always offered a great balance of style, technology and affordability so we’re delighted we’re improving the model yet again with these wheel improvements that will reduce cost of ownership, improve environmental credentials and add presence with the slightly larger alloy size.”

The improved efficiency of the tyres means dCi 110 engines on Acenta with Premium Pack, N-Connecta and N-Vision grades now deliver CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.

DiG-T 115 and dCi 130 4WD versions now emit 129g/km, which means they’re exempt from VED in the first year, saving customers £130.
