Nissan India has commenced exports of the made-in-Chennai Magnite to Indonesia, South Africa and Nepal, which have been identified as key export markets for the compact SUV.
According to the carmaker, the Nissan Magnite has received a strong response in Nepal with 760 bookings within the first 30 days of its launch in February 2021.
“Following a successful global launch, the new Nissan Magnite has been very well received by the Indian consumers. Built on the philosophy of ‘Make in India, Make for the World’, the 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 exports as part of Nissan NEXT transformation plan for our sustainable growth,” says Sinan Ozkok, president, Nissan Motor India.
