The Indian subsidiary of Japanese auto giant Nissan is all set to commence the exports of the recently launched Sunny sedan to West Asia and Africa from early next year. The decision has been taken in a bid to tap the high demand for this segment of cars in these regions.

The Nissan Sunny is priced in the range of Rs 5.78 lakh to 7.68 lakh, where it is competing with the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento and Ford Fiesta in the Indian market.

In a statement given to ET, Kiminobu Tokuyama, managing director of the company, said, "Though our priority is the local market, we will also aggressively pursue export volumes."

Meanwhile, the company is planning to launch a multipurpose vehicle in the Indian auto market, in the segment of Toyota Innova. The new MPV will be rolled out next year. However, the pricing and specification details of the car are yet to be disclosed by the firm.

While further elaborating company’s exports strategy, Mr. Tokuyama said, "This time around we are targeting the West Asia because of the demand there. Besides, we have already placed sedans from our UK and Spanish units in the European market."
