"We are launching the new saloon Sunny in October to coincide with the festive season. The petrol and diesel variant of the Nissan Sunny will be manufactured at the Renault Nissan alliance Orgadam facility in Chennai," Nissan Motor India's Managing Director and Chief Executive, Kiminobu Tokuyama, said.

Nissan Sunny was designed at Nissan Design and Nissan Motor Co Ltd headquarters in Japan along with inputs from 170 countries, and it would be sold worldwide. It made its global debut at the 8th China (Guangzhou) International Automobile Exhibition last December.

The unveiling of the car reinstates company's seriousness on business operations in India and "reiterates that we are as per schedule on our Indian plans," Tokuyama said.

The 10th Generation Nissan Sunny is based on the popular V- (Versatile) platform, the one used in the Nissan Micra.

Sunny will help the company triple its local sales to 40,000 units in the current financial year, Tokuyama said.
