The Magnite was launched in December last year. The model has received a positive response in the Indian market with bookings crossing the 50,000 units mark in April 2021.

As per the latest figures, Nissan's Oragadam plant in Tamil Nadu has produced 15,010 units of the Magnite. These include 13,790 units sold in India and 1,220 units that were exported to international markets.

The Magnite was launched in Nepal in February this year. Within the first month, the carmaker received over 760 bookings, in a country where about 1,580 cars are sold every month. The crossover made its debut in the South African market in April 2021.

In India, the Magnite is available with two engine options. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 71 BHP and 96 Nm and a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol unit that makes 99 BHP and 160 Nm. Both engines are offered with a 5-speed manual transmission. The crossover is also offered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) mated to the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. In the CVT version, peak torque has been limited to 152 Nm.

Nissan wants some action to be in the news, I guess.

Nissan had launched the Magnite in Indonesia back in January. ASEAN NCAP even tested that car and the certificate shows it to be of Indian origin. Doesn't add up that exports just commenced now - a full five months after the launch?

Magnite is being sold in Nepal for last few months and I see a couple of them in my office parking lot. The local Nissan dealer is an acquaintance of mine and he is quite happy with the sales. Kicks is also more popular here than in India I guess. Kiger is priced 1 lac NPR cheaper than Magnite. Once Kiger sales resume after lockdown, Magnite will have difficulty in keeping up the momentum.

The link below shows the XV 1.3 turbo Kicks that I test drove for a colleague yesterday.

Perhaps they exported the first batch and then got interrupted thanks to the Chinese virus?
Whatever it is, I am glad production is booming. We desperately need businesses to run to revive the economy.

While the Magnite seems to be a brilliant product very reasonably priced, the long term reliability of its CVT-turbo combination will have to be evaluated after a few years. The car comes with all the essential and nice features in the top variants, some reviews indicate its inferior interiors though. But then, certain compromises will have to be made to keep the costs under check.
