Nissan has resumed operations In India after the lockdown has been partially lifted across the country. The company had halted its entire operations due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdown in the country.
Nissan has also started dispatching BS6 cars from its manufacturing facility at Chennai to its dealerships across the country. Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt. Ltd. (RNAIPL), resumed production as per local guidelines on May 4 and dispatch of vehicles started on May 7.
The company has also issued guidelines after the restart to ensure the safekeeping of its workforce during the current crisis. The marketing and sales division also opened its office in Gurgaon as per local government guidelines. All staff at dealerships and service centres have been trained with the new standard operating procedure to ensure the health and hygiene of all stakeholders.
Speaking about the restart Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd., said, "Health and safety remain our topmost priority and we are cognizant that precaution is the best to cure during this challenging situation. In continuation of our customer-centric approach, adhering to all local Govt. guidelines and following all necessary health and safety parameters, we have commenced operations across India as part of our business continuity plan."
In related news, Nissan India is gearing up to introduce a couple of new and updated models into the Indian market. The first of many will be the launch of BS6 Nissan Kicks in the Indian market.
