The company said its exports last month stood at 5,900 units, compared with 211 units in September 2020.

In the first half of the current financial year, the automaker said it has achieved domestic wholesales of 18,591 units with a growth of 459% over last year.

"Customer sentiment is very positive this festive season with a strong inflow of bookings," Nissan Motor India Managing Director Rakesh Srivastava said in a statement.

The response for the company’s compact SUV Magnite is robust with over 65,000 plus customer bookings, he added.

"The challenge has been on the supply side with shortages of semiconductors on which we continue to work with the supply chain partners to deliver more units of the Magnite to delight the customers,” Mr. Srivastava noted.
