The plant has introduced 32 new Renault, Nissan and Datsun models and derivatives to its production line. The plant caters to both domestic and international markets and has developed into India's second largest car exporter with more than 600,000 units shipped to 106 countries since 2010. 

On this propitious occasion Christian Mardrus, Chairman of Nissan's Africa, Middle East and India region, and former Alliance Executive Vice President congratulated the workforce in Chennai for achieving a significant landmark in the ongoing evolution of this important plant.

The plant was established by the Alliance to meet the growing demand from Indian customers for high quality, locally-produced cars. It is complimented by a major R&D centre, also in Chennai, which plays a huge role in model development in India ensuring products are locally relevant. 

The most recent model to be introduced at the plant was the popular Renault Kwid in September last year. This will be followed in 2016 by the third Datsun-branded vehicle to be sold in India.
