Nissan began sales of its first locally produced passenger cars in Vietnam today. The company plans to sell 2,000 vehicles in the current fiscal year ending next March.

The seven-seater Grand Livina has gone on sale in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi and is assembled by Vietnam Motors Corp and distributed by Nissan Vietnam, a joint venture between the carmaker and Denmark’s Kjaer Group.

Nissan sold about 200 vehicles in Vietnam last year and plans to expand sales in the country by rolling out at least eight models in the next three years, the company said.
