Nissan's small car
Japanese auto-major Nissan Motor has proposed to venture into the entry level automatic passenger car market by launching the next generation car named 'March' by 2010. "We are hoping to launch the small next generation car 'March' by 2010. It will be launched in the 'A' segment category in India," Nissan Motor India MD Shouhei Kimura said. "The car is expected to compete with the other brands in the 'A'category and it would be manufactured from the company's plant situated at Oragadam," Kimura said. To a query, he said, "We will have a total of nine Nissan models by the year 2012 in the Indian market and this car would be one of the new models". "It will have 80% of localisation" he said. On the signing of MoU with Ennore Port, from where Nissan would be exporting around 110,000 units by 2011, Kimura said the exports would include this new model which would be built on Nissan's new platform. "Since Ennore Port sanctioned 1,40,000 sqmt of land for exports the company would export this car from here as well," Kimura said.
