The Micra hatchback debuted in the country in July 2010 and since then the company has sold more than 15,000 units of Micra in the Indian market along with exporting about 70,000 units of the car to the overseas market.

Commenting on the company’s achievement, Nissan Motor India Managing Director and CEO (Chennai plant) Kou Kimura said, "I am very proud of the effort that our Chennai staff, supported by our suppliers, have made to produce 100,000 Micras in such a short period of time. Today's announcement not only reflects Micra's popularity -- both domestically and within export markets -- but also Nissan's long term commitment to India."

Japanese Nissan and French car maker Renault, who are partners in the global market, have set-up a joint venture manufacturing facility at Oragadam near Chennai with a projected investment of Rs 4,500 crore.
