Currently, the automajor only has two models in its line-up - Kicks BS 6 and GT-R supercar. Nissan is yet to reveal pricing on the former model. (Read more details here). It goes without saying that low-sales and comparatively high pricing of the BS 6 update is the reason behind the discontinuation. On the other hand, the company is preparing a sub-compact SUV for India launch, it is rumored to be named Magnite. The SUV has been officially teased on company's site and is expected to set foot in India later this year.

The company launched the Micra hatchback in India a decade back, the car then went on to receive a mid-life update in 2014 and the next facelift followed in 2017. With the last official update, the hatchback gained follow-me function, rain sensing wipers and sporty orange interior accents.
