Nissan, the Japanese automaker, recently announced that it surpassed the 1 lakh units production milestone of its sub-compact Magnite SUV in the country. The Magnite was first introduced by the firm in December 2020, and in a span of just 30 months, this best-selling model in the carmaker's lineup has accomplished a remarkable achievement. There's no doubt that the Magnite has served as the company's pivotal product in the Indian market. As a result, the manufacturer is now getting ready to launch new products in our home market as it rides high on the popularity of the Magnite. For the uninitiated, Nissan has made India its primary global manufacturing base for the Magnite through the adoption of the "Make In India, Make for the World" strategy. Nissan is presently exporting the 'Made in India' Magnite to about 15 foreign countries. Meanwhile, the Nissan Magnite Geza, a unique music edition of the SUV inspired by Japanese theatre, was launched in India at a price tag of Rs 7.39 lakh, while the standard Magnite's price range starts at Rs 5.99 lakh and goes up to Rs 11.02 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.
Sharing his thoughts on the latest milestone, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India said, "The Big, Bold, Beautiful Nissan Magnite has been a game-changer in the Indian market. The production of the 100,000th Magnite is a testimony of Nissan's brand promise of providing its customers products that are high on value, safety, and strong customer service making it a global product".
