Japanese auto major Nissan Motor wants to become the largest car exporter from India, a senior executive said. Nissan started exporting the Micra from the Chennai plant in 2010. Since then, they are the fastest growing exporters, currently exporting 85 per cent of production to foreign markets. South Korean Hyundai Motor and Maruti Suzuki India are the largest exporters of cars from India as of now.

The company exports have doubled to over one lakh units in the last fiscal owing to the strong demand for compact cars in Europe and Latin America. The ‘Made in India’ Micra has been a huge success, currently sold in over 100 countries. Nissan is also planning to make India the launch pad for its entry level low-cost brand Datsun.

In India, Nissan Sunny the luxury sedan by the Japanese car maker has been more than successful here after its small car Nissan Micra. Primarily it is the big size and not only the big size, but the big reputation of the brand and the value for money helped the car to fetch good volumes in India.
