Nissan has announced the exports of the Magnite Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) to Indonesia, South Africa and Nepal from India.
Since its launch in December 2020, the company has produced 15,010 sub-compact SUVs including 13,790 for India and 1,220 for exports, Nissan said in a statement.
According to the carmaker, the SUV has received over 760 bookings in the Nepal market within the first 30 days of its launch in February 2021. Nepal has monthly passenger vehicle sales of 1,580 units.
Sinan Ozkok, president, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd, said, “Following a successful global launch, the new Nissan Magnite has been very well received by the Indian consumers. Having already made a mark in the Indian market, the new Nissan Magnite is driving excitement among customers on a global scale.”
Ozkok added, “Built on the philosophy of “Make in India, Make for the World”, the new Nissan Magnite will explore more export markets after the overwhelming customer response it has received in the Nepal market. We are confident that the game changer SUV will strengthen the exports as part of Nissan NEXT transformation plan for our sustainable growth”.
The company said that it has been able to meet growing demands in the Indian and export markets with the introduction of the third shift in its manufacturing process earlier this year, along with 1000+ new hires across the manufacturing plant.
