Nissan, one of the leading Japan based auto maker globally, has called back over 249522 units of its cars from the company’s global portfolio, of which 9600 units comprises of the Indian manufactured Micra. The Nissan Micra is the auto giant’s bestselling model in the international market, while the response for the hatchback in the Indian market is gearing up steadily.

The company has recently decided to step up the production capacity for catering the increasing demand of Micra in the global auto market. The production plant of the firm located at Oragadam in Chennai is basically its major export hub and the 9600 units of Micra recalled from the international market were manufactured at this plant. However, none of the hatchback sold in the Indian market has been called back as the Micra sold in the domestic market differ in technicalities and specifications as compared to the export version of the car.

The recall came into effect due to minor mechanical fault arising from fixed fuel rail of direct injection engine and error in fixation of fuel pressure sensors that may also lead to leakages in fuel and the fault will be rectified by the firm through tightening the fuel pressure sensors so that the undue leakages of fuel won’t be experienced by the buyer.

The Japanese auto maker is utilizing its Indian production plant as an export hub for the hatchback, Micra and has been positioned as the third largest compact car exporter after Hyundai in second position and the leader, Maruti.
