Nissan Motor India has achieved a key milestone of exporting one million Nissan vehicles. Since exports began in September 2010, Nissan has shipped automobiles from its Chennai-based Renault-Nissan Automotive India Ltd. facility to 108 different nations.

From Chennai's Kamarajar Port Ltd (formerly Ennore Port Ltd.), Nissan India has shipped vehicles to a number of locations, including the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, New Zealand, Australia, South-East Asia, SAARC nations, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South-East Asia. Nissan India's main export markets have recently shifted from Europe to the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

One of Nissan's most popular exports is the Nissan Magnite compact SUV.

The RNAIPL factory has contributed 1.5 billion US Dollars to the Indian economy since it began operations. Over 40,000 individuals (direct and indirect) who produce items and provide assistance for activities connected to vehicle requirements have been given employment and skill-building opportunities.

To meet the soaring demand for the Nissan Magnite in the Indian and international markets, the facility has recently increased production.

Commenting on the milestone, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said, "Nissan India reflects the strong value of our 'Make in India, Make for the World' philosophy. Exports are a strong pillar of Nissan India's business strategy, and we will continue growing our customer base in diverse markets, segments, backed by our focus on best-in-class products, innovative technologies, robust performance, and safety. The Nissan Magnite has validated our business approach, and its success in markets in India and overseas has established it as a key driver of the Nissan NEXT transformation plan."
