Mumbai: Japanese auto major Nissan has launched mid-size sedan Sunny and said it aims to sell 12,000 units of the new car by the end of this fiscal.

The 10th generation Sunny is based on Nissan’s popular V- (versatile) platform which is also used in the Micra - its first car in the country.

“India is an exciting market for many global auto majors. We want to tap the opportunity. We will launch three more models by 2015," Nissan Motor Company corporate vice-president (Africa, Middle East & India) Gilles Normand said, adding the company is happy with the performance of Micra.

The auto maker said over 85% of the components for the Sunny have been locally sourced, out of which as much as 40% parts are sourced from Chennai itself.
