Here are some impressive numbers to show that 218 Nissan Magnite SUVs were booked daily out of which only 42% have been delivered so far. These figures suggest the popularity that the Magnite is gaining among car buyers. Also, this brings forth the relatively slow deliveries of the SUV. This stretches the waiting periods a bit longer which could be a bit disappointing for the potential buyers. The SUV boasts of being the second most affordable compact SUV in the country after its cousin, the Renault Kiger. This has been the prime cause for its massive popularity. It has successfully managed to offer its customers the experience of owning an SUV by spending an amount equivalent to a hatchback. The price-conscious Indian population liked the concept and that shows in the numbers.
72,000 Nissan Magnite SUVs Booked; 30,000 Delivered
The compact SUV has recently reached the milestone of 30,000 deliveries. The company also announced that it has received over 72,000 bookings in total. Now, due to the manufacturing limitations, it has only been able to deliver around 42%. Magnite has been consistently able to pos healthy monthly sales figures which suggest that people are still after buying it. The aim of Nissan was to fetch potential customers even from the adjacent segments like hatchback and sedans. The trend of SUVs has completely overtaken the world and has trickled down to the lower segments as well. This trend is likely to continue as more and more new products are coming up even in a segment below, namely the micro SUV segment. We hope that Nissan will be able to sort its production capabilities to ramp up the production so that the waiting periods could go down.
The Nissan Magnite comes with two petrol engine options. There is a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated unit which makes 72 PS and 96 Nm of peak power and torque. The other option includes a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine making 100 PS and 160 Nm of peak power and torque. There are options of either a 5-speed manual with the regular petrol or a CVT automatic with the turbo petrol. The prices of the Magnite range between Rs 5.71 lakh and Rs 10.15 lakh, ex-showroom. The direct competitors of the Magnite are Renault Kiger, Maruti Ignis and the recently launched Tata Punch. With so many Nissan Magnite SUVs booked and delivered, it is becoming the leader in the segment.
