John Abraham is Nissan India`s new brand ambassador
John Abraham, the Bollywood hunk is a well-known speed freak and is the proud owner of a riveting garage which has tasteful blend of exotic to everyday bikes and cars. John has been recently announced as the brand ambassador of Nissan Motor India Ltd. The auto major has partnered with the Bollywood actor to promote its upcoming models like the X-Trail Hybrid SUV and the GT-R sports car. The Japanese auto major currently has just five vehicles to offer to its Indian customers and is willing to present more.
The GT-R lovingly called as Godzilla and the X-Trail Hybrid were unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo. Both the vehicles are expected to arrive in India during the second half of 2016. Nissan which is in global alliance with Renault rolled out its 1 millionth small car- Micra last month from its manufacturing facility near Chennai. Nissan also happens to be one of the largest car exporters of India, it has shipped over 6, 00,000 units to 106 countries till date. The auto major is leaving no stone unturned to boost its sales in the domestic market, and the current move to utilize John Abraham’s stardom highlights this fact.
John Abraham’s passion for cars and bikes is no secret and Nissan roping in the Bollywood actor just when it aims to broaden its product range in India is a smart move indeed! John is very passionate about driving and his garage says it all, he owns a Maruti Gypsy, Audi Q7 and the exotic Lamborghini Gallardo. An ardent fan of superbikes, the superstar is a proud owner of a Yamaha R1, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R, Suzuki Hayabusa and the Aprilia RSV4. So far Nissan`s sales figures in India have not been very impressive, but let’s hope that young Indians connect well with an auto enthusiast like John, and this changes the fortunes of Nissan in India.
