New Prices are to be effective from January 20, 2012
CHENNAI/MUMBAI/NEW DELHI (January 19, 2012) - Nissan Motor India Pvt. Limited announced today that prices of its best selling Diesel and Petrol versions of Micra and September-launched Sunny Petrol will be increased by 0.56 per cent to 2.09 per cent from January 20, 2012.
Prices of all three variants of Petrol Micra will go up by Rs 3,000, while prices of both variants of Diesel Micra will go up by Rs 12,000.
Prices of all three variants of Petrol Sunny, which was launched in the Indian market in September, 2011, will be increased by Rs 5,000, while the price of the recently launched Diesel version of Sunny will remain unchanged.
Releasing the price increase, Managing Director of Nissan Motor India Pvt Limited, Mr Kiminobu Tokuyama said, “As in the case with many manufacturers in India, rising input costs and depreciating Rupee have left us with no option but to marginally adjust the prices of some of our models. However, Nissan remains committed to offering our customers outstanding value. The limited price increase is balanced to allow us sustain our business momentum while continuing to provide the best products at affordable prices.”
Sunny Diesel was launched early this month in the market, after dealerships started accepting bookings from the second week of December, 2011. Sunny Petrol was launched in India in September, 2011. The Sunny won the 2011 Car of the Year award from ZigWheels in the entry-level compact sedan segment.
Micra was launched in India in July, 2010 and, so far, over 25,000 Micras have been sold in India. Micra received the JD Power Asia Pacific award in the premium compact segment, with a score of 857 and performed particularly well in six of the 10 categories.
