Nissan to start selling small car in India

Nissan Motor plans to start selling its first small car in India from July and export the vehicle later this year as part of its strategy to make the country a global manufacturing hub, the Chief Executive of its local unit said Wednesday.

"We are well on track to open the new factory in March. Production will start in May and the first hatchback on the V platform will be sold from July," Kiminobu Tokuyama, who is also Nissan Motor India’s Managing Director, told Dow Jones Newswires in an interview.
