Sales of the India-made Datsun GO+ units in South Africa began on August 31, 2016 and highlights the company’s position as an integral contributor to the ‘Make-in-India’ revolution. The brand reiterated that the export of Datsun GO+ to South Africa also signifies the increasing popularity of the India-made Nissan products for export markets, thanks to the quality of output from the Renault-Nissan Alliance plant in Oragadam, near Chennai. Currently, the Chennai plant exports vehicles to 106 countries around the world, and include the Datsun GO, Datsun GO+, Datsun Redi-GO and Nissan Sunny. Datsun’s Redi-GO , produced at the Chennai plant, recently went on sale in Nepal and Sri Lanka too.
Guillaume Sicard, President, Nissan India Operations, said: “We are delighted to see the Datsun GO+, manufactured with pride at the Renault-Alliance plant in Chennai, introduced for sale in South Africa. Following on the success of the India-built Datsun GO’s launch into the small car segment in South Africa, the GO+ is another example of our Make in India models’ making a mark in overseas markets. Our exports continue to help Nissan build its presence in India and grow the local economy.”
