Nissan is now India’s biggest exporter with 1.16 lakh units exported of the Micra and the Sunny, in the financial year 2013-14. This translates to an increase of 17.5 per cent, over the same period last year.

Nissan now pips Maruti to be the second largest exporter of Indian production, though it is more than half behind segment leaders Hyundai, who exported 2.33 lakh units, though this is a 10 per cent drop over last year. Maruti came in third, with 1.01 lakh units. This was in spite of the fact that Suzuki has now shifted production for left-hand drive units of the Swift from Japan to India for cost optimization. Europe is one of the biggest markets for Suzuki, but with no new models in sight till the new premium hatchback (Codename: YRA) goes into production, export is suffering. The fact that the A-Star (known globally as the Alto) and the Celerio for European markets is being made by Suzuki Thailand, does not help either.

Other major players in the export business were Ford with 48,088 units comprising mainly of the Figo and EcoSport, whilst Volkswagen exported 32,588 units and Toyota Kirloskar 27,276 units.
