Mr Nitish Tipnis, Director-Marketing & Sales, Hover Automotive India (HAI), Nissan’s sales and marketing partner in India, said: “The encouraging sales numbers during these tough market conditions is a true reflection of customers’ faith in Nissan’s product quality and after sales service. We have expanded our network presence across 66 % of the Indian market thereby reaching out closer to the customers.
