Nissan India announced the start of export of Datsun GO CVT and GO+ CVT (continuously variable transmission) to South Africa from its alliance manufacturing facility - Renault Nissan Alliance India Pvt Ltd.

"The milestone confirms Nissan's position as a major contributor to 'Make in India' program encouraging local production and investment," a company statement said. Since beginning operations in India in 2010, Nissan has shipped over 8.80 lakh cars making the Chennai unit a major hub for overseas markets.

Now, we are proud to export these versions to South Africa", RNAIPL managing director and CEO Biju Balendran said. Exports form a key strategic pillar of India operations and it is a firm affirmation of Nissan's commitment towards building India as one of the key manufacturing hubs globally, he said.

The Datsun GO and GO+ with CVT are high on technology and offer better control on the road. Both models offer smooth shifting of gears, better city, highway and hill driving. It also includes a sports mode, yet another first for most CVT offerings in this segment, the statement added.
