Another factor that may have played a key role in the automaker's sales growth in November was a boost in festive season demand.
The automaker was offering festive benefits like hefty discounts on its new models. This strategy too helped the automaker to post higher sales numbers last month. Nissan India offered a discount of ₹one lakh on its Kicks SUV during the last festive season to attract consumers.
As Nissan India claims, increased focus on digital sales too is helping the brand to reach more consumers. It claims that 31 per cent of the total bookings are coming from digital sales channels.
Nissan India further claims that its market share in the Indian passenger vehicle segment has increased thanks to the Magnite. The auto OEM witnessed its market share in the PV segment increased to 1.38 per cent in April-October 2021 period from 0.38 per cent in the same period last year.
