Nissan India expanded its
successful exports programme to an additional market with the introduction of
Datsun GO+ to South Africa. Sales of the
Datsun GO+, produced at the Renault-Nissan Alliance plant in Oragadam near
Chennai, began on August 31, 2016 in South Africa.
Since operations began at the
plant in 2010 over 620,000 cars have been exported overseas. Currently, the
Chennai plant exports vehicles to 106 countries around the world. Recent models
for export include Datsun GO, Datsun GO+, Datsun redi-GO and Nissan Sunny,
among others. Most recently, exports of Datsun redi-GO cars produced in Chennai
went on sale in Nepal in July. This was followed by the redi-GO leading the
Datsun brand’s return to the market in Sri Lanka in August.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance
Chennai plant plays an essential role in the development of Nissan Motor’s
business in India. The export of Datsun GO+ to South Africa signifies the
increasing popularity of India-made Nissan products for export markets, as well
as the skill and dedication of the Chennai plant employees. The plant has a
capacity to produce up to 480,000 units per year. It is a major contributor to
the local economy and has created over 40,000 direct and indirect jobs.
