On the 72nd Republic Day of India, Nissan delivered 720 units of the Magnite to customers. Nissan Magnite has managed to garner over 35,000 bookings as of now, and over 1.5 lakh enquiries.
Nissan Magnite was launched in December last year. On the 72nd Republic Day of India, Nissan delivered around 720 units of the new SUV across the nation. Till date, it is confirmed that Nissan has received over 35,000 bookings and 1.5 lakh enquiries for the newly-launched Nissan Magnite.
As a result of the overwhelming demand from the Indian market, the waiting period for this model has gone up to over eight months. In order to meet the unexpected response, Nissan has started the third shift in its manufacturing facility to increase its manufacturing capacity. Sharing about the delivery of 720 units of Nissan Magnite on 72th Republic Day of India, Rakesh Srivastava, MD, Nissan Motor India said:
“On the joyous celebration of India’s 72nd Republic Day, the Nissan India family commemorated this special occasion with 720-plus deliveries of the all-new Nissan Magnite, an SUV built on the philosophy of ‘Make in India, Make for the World.’ We thank our customers for their overwhelming response, our dealer partners for their immense support and congratulate every Indian on this special day!”
It is not an overstatement to say that the Nissan Magnite is possibly the last chance for Nissan in our market. Fortunately, the positive initial responses somewhat suggest a brighter future for the Japanese carmaker in India. Upon entering the highly competitive space of compact SUVs, Nissan Magnite has prepared itself with aggressive pricing that undercuts most of its rivals. Nissan has priced the Magnite from Rs 5.49 lakh to Rs 9.59 lakh (ex-showroom). It takes on the likes of Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, and Ford EcoSport.
