Well, the Qashqai is way too high to lift bicycles (or more heavy e-bikes) onto a bicycle carrier mounted to a roof luggage rack...
There are bicycle carriers available which are strapped onto the hatch door - this isn't a safe way to transport bikes at all, especially not for e-bikes.
The safest way is a bicycle carrier mounted on a tow bar.

For mounting on a tow bar there are a few decent bicycle carriers available, e.g. Thule or Westfalia - just to name two (these brands ought to be available in GB, too).

I've used a similar 3 bike rack on my 2012 QQ since new without any problems.

Rear Mounted cycle racks will snap off the rear spoiler.

I've used a high level rear mounted cycle carrier on my 2015 QQ Acenta with no issues, although I've never been able to relax with the bike on the back. Just took delivery of my new QQ N-Connecta and made sure I got one with roof rails so that I could get roof bars and a roof mounted cycle rack. To that end, does anyone have any suggestions on both roof bars and a cycle rack?
