Nissan Magnite SUV has helped the Japanese carmaker to register a 6 per cent growth in India in the first three months of this year. The carmaker announced that it sold as many as 4,012 vehicles in March 2021.

The Magnite SUV, which was launched on December 2 last year, recently hit a production milestone of 10,000 vehicles in India. The demand for this sub-compact SUV has forced Nissan to ramp up its production at its facility in Oragadam near Chennai to tackle the challenge of long waiting period for customers.
