Four months into the launch, and Nissan has already received 50,000 bookings for the all-new Magnite. The company SUV starts at Rs 5.59 lakh for the base trim and goes up to Rs 9.90 lakh for the top-end variant.
Ever since its launch in December, the Magnite has been working really well for Nissan. The company has already received more than 50,000 bookings for the all-new compact SUV. Given that it has just three models on sale, including the Kicks and the GT-R, Nissan was counting on the Magnite. Thankfully for the Japanese carmaker, the response has been positive, and the company has sold nearly 10,000 units of the car since the launch.
With high demand for the vehicle, Nissan had some teething issues with regards to the production numbers of the car. Now, the company has ramped up production to meet the demand more effectively. This should effectively help bring down the long waiting period as well. In fact, reducing the wait time should be the immediate focus for the brand – after all the Magnite is, as of now, Nissan's bread-and-butter offering in India.
Nissan brought in the Magnite at a starting price of Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in December 2020, but since then, the vehicle has received two price hikes. Currently, the Magnite demands Rs 5.59 lakh for the base trim and Rs 9.90 lakh for the fully-loaded iteration.
The Nissan Magnite comes powered by a single 1.0-litre engine option, which is on sale in two iterations – naturally aspirated and turbocharged. The former is good for 71bhp and 96Nm. The turbocharged iteration, however, puts out 99bhp and 160Nm. The naturally aspirated option only comes paired with a manual transmission, but those looking at the turbo variants can choose between a manual and a CVT.
