Final Curtain Call: Nissan Qashqai to be Discontinued in Canada from 2024

Though unconfirmed, there will be no 2024 Nissan Qashqai in Canada, following in the US footsteps

  • Was sold as the Rogue Sport in the US up until the 2022 model year.

  • Strangely, sales are way up so far this year.

This, we’ll call it a solid rumour, isn’t exactly a surprise. That the Nissan Qashqai will bow out of the Canadian market with the 2023 model year was predictable as roughly 10 months ago, news of the Rogue Sport being pulled from the US set the wheels in motion for the demise of the small SUV.

The Nissan Rogue Sport, aka Qashqai, to be Discontinued in the US

The Nissan Qashqai (QQ) has been a stalwart in the small crossover market, earning plaudits for its comfortable ride and sporty styling. However, with the automotive market’s ongoing evolution, the Qashqai finds itself ducking out of the competition.

This development marks the end of the QQ’s North American journey, as it is already no longer available in the United States under the name Rogue Sport. Though there seems to be 2022 MY vehicles left, there is no way to build a new 2023. A similar scenario will likely happen in Canada where the 2023 Qashqai will probably be available into the first quarter of 2024.

As reported by our colleagues at Le Guide l’auto, one of the reasons for this outcome are costs related to importing the QQ as it’s assembled in England and Japan. If you recall the Juke, like the QQ, a current modern generation exists but is not sold on our side of the Pond.

Finally, it looks as though it’ll be up to the Kicks to pick up where the QQ leaves off. A new generation should launch next year for the 2025 model year and gain a number of features including optional AWD to fill the void.

Godspeed QQ.
