Guillaume Sicard, president, Nissan India Operations said, “India is a key strategic market for Nissan. We have major manufacturing and R&D operations which support us to be one of India’s biggest exporters of cars. While exports help us in optimal utilisation of our manufacturing capacity, it also helps showcase world-class Indian production quality on the global stage and expands the scope for widening the export base for India-built cars. Datsun Go which is developed and manufactured in India, is a good example of ‘Made in India’ and ‘Made by India’.”
