Nissan Sunny is here to carry on the successful run of the Nissan Micra. The Micra was just the start of big things to come. Nissan is now bringing a much bigger car; a medium sized sedan named the Sunny can be expected pretty soon to shine up the monsoons. In fact the company has also announced that it is expecting to sell at least close to eleven thousand cars before the end of this financial year.
Nissan Micra has already set the benchmark in the Indian auto markets. In spite of it’s out of the box looks, the car is being held as the best in its class. The Nissan Sunny is expected to come with a 1.5 litre engine and with a price starting from 5.78 lakh up to 7.68 lakhs for the high end variants.
The Nissan firm has a target of selling more than 40000 cars in the Indian market. The company top sources also revealed that for the Indian markets, “We are planning to sell 40,000 units across all models available in India by the end of this fiscal year. Of this, we aim to sell around 12,000 units of the Sunny”.
The Nissan is expected to come in 3 variants XE, XL and XV. It is also expected to sport an airbag for all the three variants. The Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd on the launch of its Nissan Sunny petrol version sedan in Mumbai on Tuesday said that the company is also planning to bring out a diesel variant. The corporate vice president Gilles Normand says the diesel version is due to the market demand in India for the diesel variants.
“We have been talking to our engineers to see if we can pull forward the launch,” said Normand. He also added that the petrol diesel gap is widening from the earlier figures of 45:55 to the earlier 20:80. The diesel variant is expected to be available by the end of this fiscal year, he said.
The car is expected to compete with the likes of the Volkswagen UP!
