Nissan Rolls Out 50,000th Unit Of The Magnite From Chennai Plant
Nissan launched its highly popular offering, the Magnite in December 2020. And now, the carmaker has rolled out the 50,000th unit of the sub-4m SUV from its Chennai-based manufacturing plant. That’s impressive considering we’ve experienced multiple lockdowns and a global semiconductor shortage during the same period. In fact, the chip crisis still persists.
Commenting on this occasion, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said, –
Currently, the Magnite is bagging over 72,000 bookings in India. The brand also exports the SUV to 15 other countries and it has clocked over 1 lakh cumulative sales in domestic and export markets. It is available in six broad trims: XE, XL, XV Executive, XV, XV Premium, and XV Premium (O), priced from Rs 5.76 lakh to Rs 10.15 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
