Like other global giants, the Japanese automobile manufacturer seems to be focusing on developing markets to achieve its global sales strategies. Following its Japanese counterparts, planning to bring automatic variants of Micra and Sunny, seems to reflect this fact. Yes, Nissan will soon be releasing the CVT version of its Micra and the saloon Sunny in Indian market. The company is expecting that this move, along with launch of new models, will increase its markets share in India up to 10 percent in the years to come.
The CVT versions of Nissan Micra and Sunny have already been introduced in different parts of the world. The company has engineered this transmission system to weigh less, less friction and high transmission ratio when compared to similar models from other auto marques. This has improved the performance of the cars in the form of enhanced reaction to throttling and has increased fuel efficiency.
Nissan, in collaboration with its global partner Renault, has plans to develop a compact SUV for Indian market. This may take place in the Research and Development center of the JV located in Chennai. The company is also planning to expand its dealership network in the country by having 300 dealerships by next few years. About 10 new cars are expected to be rolled out from the plants of Nissan in next three to four years which includes Datsun cars.
