Nissan begins Magnite production

Nissan India on November 2 announced the start of production of all-new Magnite at its plant in Oragadam, Chennai.

Built on the philosophy of ‘Make in India, Make for the World’, the all-new Nissan Magnite marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Nissan NEXT strategy for the Indian and global market, said a press release.

“RNAIPL is thrilled to commemorate the start of production of the all-new Nissan Magnite. We are also exploring opportunities to export this big, bold, beautiful and charismatic SUV. This is a colossal milestone for us, and we are proud of producing a SUV equipped with intuitive packaging and human-centric engineering that is inspired by India and designed in Japan,” said Mr Biju Balendran, MD & CEO, RNAIPL.

Combined with Nissan’s Cruise Control, the all-new Nissan Magnite’s signature X-TRONIC CVT gearbox with wider gear range delivers seamless performance even in peak city traffic. It also sports the powerful HRA0 engine which delivers higher torque at a lower speed and adopts the “mirror bore cylinder coating” technology from world-class sportscars such as the Nissan GT-R.

The all-new Nissan Magnite will also be available with the B4D engine which offers the perfect equilibrium of performance and fuel economy with its five-speed manual transmission.

Mr Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, commented: “The start of production of the all-new Nissan Magnite is a proud moment for all of us. With an array of first-in-class and best-in-segment features, each grade walk has been curated to meet the aspirations of the discerning Indian customer.”
