While here in New Delhi we were busy covering the official launch of 2012 Audi A6, a few hundred kilometers away in Mumbai the much awaited Nissan’s new sedan has been unveiled and interestingly ruling out all the speculations the company has named it Nissan Sunny for India as well.
Based on the Nissan V-Platform, also shared by Nissan Micra, the car has finally made its way into the market and as per what the spokesperson stated at the unveil, it seems the company has a another surprise waiting to be given in the coming months.
On the occasion, Mr. Kiminobu Tokuyama, M.D. & CEO, Nissan Motor India said, “The unveiling of the iconic Nissan SUNNY today reinstates our seriousness on business operations in India. It reiterates that we are as per schedule on our Indian plans including future product launches. Nissan SUNNY highlights the versatility of the global V- platform that allows us to benchmark ourselves with novel design features for the mid-size segment. The vehicle will offer more value to the discerning customer and carve out a niche amidst competition in the fast growing Indian automobile market,”
Despite officially disclosing it in front of the media, the company still has not mentioned a number of important things which were expected. Firstly the number of variants have not been mentioned and secondly the price band which still remains a mystery.
Interestingly, following a similar strategy as Ford India followed, the company will introduce a more fuel efficient 1.5 Litre MPFI petrol engine in a few months from now and has not derived the 1.6 Litre powermill which the global model sports.
Whatever the number of variants may be, all will be manufactured at the Renault-Nissan plant in Orgadam, Chennai. As per our expectations the car will be priced between Rs. 6.5 Lakh and Rs. 9.5 Lakh.
