Japanese car maker Nissan said it has delivered the 30,000th unit of its new compact SUV Magnite, first global product under the Nissan NEXT transformation plan. Magnite was launched for the Indian market about a year ago.

The chairperson also presented Nissan Global President’s Award to the Nissan India team for the launch of Nissan Magnite, a first for Nissan India operations, according to a statement.

He said that with the Magnite, Nissan wanted to shake up the highly competitive compact SUV segment in India.

“Nissan Magnite is a core model under the company’s global transformation strategy, and is playing a key role in strengthening Nissan’s presence in India and overseas under ‘Make in India, Make for the world’,” said Sinan Ozkok, President, Nissan Motor India.


The company said its SUV Magnite comes with the best, lowest-in-class maintenance cost of 30 paise/km (for 50,000 km) along with a warranty of 2 years (50,000kms) which can be extended for up to 5 years (100,000 km) at a nominal cost.

“Launch of the all-new Magnite has proven itself to be a game-changer, redefining value in the SUV segment. Multiple awards from media and now this very special recognition of Global Nissan President Award is a proud moment for the Nissan India family,” stated Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India.
