The automobile giants like Ford, Hyundai, Maruti Suzuki have had their base in India and now they are planning to expend their wings and carter both domestic and export market. Exports have grown at a rate of 3.9pc in the first six months of the current fiscal and things are looking up. We take a look at the top five cars exported from India this financial year.

1. Nissan Micra

Nissan recently took a decision to make India its manufacturing base and that's why we see them topping the charts. The company hasn't been doing that well as far as domestic sales are concerned but exports are on the rise. The company has also announced that the Datsun brand of products will also be made in India and exported to other markets which will add to their numbers.

2. Hyundai Grand i10

The Grand i10 has been a big success for Hyundai in India and the company has been exporting the car to other markets as well. The demand for the car has escalated not just in India but all around the world too. Hyundai, however, has been concentrating on domestic market demands instead of exports but still finds itself in second place.

3. Volkswagen Vento

Though Volkswagen has been in the middle of a crisis, the company has posted a steady growth in the export market all thanks to the Vento. The facelift of the Vento hit Indian shores this year and the car, also known as the Polo sedan, has garnered its fair share of business in other markets. Volkswagen India has managed to export 56064 units this fiscal and this has helped them gain some lost ground

4. Ford EcoSport

Ford had clearly stated at the outset that India will be one of their biggest production hubs in the world and the EcoSport has been at the forefront of their export lists.

5. Nissan Sunny

The Sunny has had its share of ups and downs and though it's the most spacious car in its segment, the Indian customer hasn't really done it any justice. 38759 units of the Sunny have been exported from India making it the fifth most exported car from this country in 2015. The car has undergone a massive facelift last year but it looks like the launch of next-gen model might be around the corner.
