Nissan India has started exporting the Magnite to Indonesia, South Africa, and Nepal. The carmaker states it has produced 15,010 units of the sub-4m SUV by the end of May, out of which 13,790 units have been allocated to Indian buyers.
The Magnite was introduced in Nepal in February 2021 and it managed to register over 760 bookings within just a month. In the Indian market, where it was launched in December 2020, the SUV had already garnered over 50,000 bookings in April. Nissan started a third shift at its plant earlier this year to meet the high demand. The Magnite is currently facing a waiting period of up to seven months, with some delays being attributed to the disruptions caused by the second wave of the pandemic.
The Magnite is offered with two petrol engine options: 1.0-litre naturally aspirated (72PS/96Nm) and 1.0-litre turbo-petrol (100PS/160Nm). While the former is mated to a 5-speed MT only, the latter gets the choice of either a 5-speed MT or a CVT (152Nm with the CVT gearbox).
