Nissan’s Oragadam facility near Chennai has produced the 50,000th unit of its Magnite SUV. The made-in-India Magnite SUV, Nissan’s turn-around product for our market, is being marketed not only locally but also in over 15 foreign countries. The Magnite first went on sale in December 2020, and because to its aggressive starting price of Rs 4.99 lakh, the SUV has been essential in increasing footfall at Nissan showrooms since its launch. The SUV is offered with a 72-horsepower 1.0-litre NA petrol engine or a 100-horsepower 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. For both engine options, a 5-speed manual is available, as well as a CVT for the petrol automatic.
