Japanese car maker Nissan plans to develop its first 'made-in-India' car in the next 5-6 years, and enhance the R&D centre at Chennai by doubling the strength of its engineers to around 4,000 people.

"Our plan is to enhance the capability of our R&D centre. Once we will have complete testing facilities, we will have the potential to develop the platform and will be able to roll out a vehicle indigenously from our R&D centre in Chennai," said Takayuki Ishida, MD and CEO, Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd (NMIPL) .

Besides, Nissan's wholly-owned subsidiary said it is "rectifying" some of issues related to its association with distribution and service partner Hover Automotive India (HAI) after witnessing "some unrests" from a section of dealers.
