Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan continues to export vehicles out of India. In September 2016 it achieved 20 per cent growth for the month compared to the same month one year earlier. This performance by Nissan is said to be the best among major automobile manufacturers in India in the passenger vehicle segment.
The company is believed to be one of the fastest-growing exporters of cars from India. Nissan Motor India exported a total of 11,999 vehicles, including both Nissan and Datsun cars in the month of September. Nissan earlier this year also announced the start of exports of the Datsun redi-GO to South Africa, Sri Lanka and Nepal, in addition to the Datsun GO and GO+.
Commenting on the achievement, Guillaume Sicard, President, Nissan India Operations said, “Nissan is proud to contribute to the country’s economy and the Make in India program by continuing to be one of the largest automotive exporters from India. Our strategy to use our plant in India as an export hub underlines our significant presence here and also demonstrates our long-term plans for growth. The Oragadam plant is the largest and most advanced in the Alliance, and directly and indirectly we have created 40,000 jobs in India, including 6,000 high value engineering jobs at our R&D centre.”
