The Japanese car major Nissan motor has shipped out 11,999 units of cars from its plant near Chennai. In a recent statement Nissan India said that it has shipped 11,999 units of Nissan and Datsun branded cars, which is significantly higher than the export volume of Nissan last year.
According to Guillaume Sicard, President, Nissan India Operations, Nissan India’s strategy is to use its plant in India as an export hub underlines the company's significant presence in the sub-continent and also demonstrates the company’s long-term plans for growth.
Earlier this year Nissan India announced that it will start exporting Datsun redi-Go to countries like South Africa, Sri-lanka and Nepal.
Nissan has quite a nice portfolio with cars like Sunny, Terrano, Micra and the Nissan GTR or the famous Godzilla. Nissan’s subsidiary Datsun makes cars like Datsun Go, Go+ and redi-Go. Recently Nissan has launched its Terrano SUV with an AMT gearbox, which has made the capable SUV even better buy. The SUV is available in both petrol and diesel variants. While the diesel engine runs on two state of tunes which produces 110PS and 85PS respectively, the petrol version produces a respectable 104PS of power.
Recently Nissan recalled 932 units of its subsidiary Datsun’s redi-Go hatchback due to inspect the fuel hose and fix a clip. Till date Datsun has sold over 14000 units of the redi-Go. The redi-Go comes with two engine options, one is a 0.8-liter and the other one is a 1.0-liter engine and both performs brilliantly when it comes to day to day driving. Additionally, the quirky look of the hatchback helped it to sell in large numbers.
