Nissan India announced on Tuesday that it has rolled out the 50,000th unit of its sport utility vehicle (SUV) Magnite from Allianz Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd (RNAIPL) Chennai Plant.

Calling Magnite a game changer, Rakesh Srivastava, MD, Nissan Motor India, said in a statement that the company has received over 100,000 customer bookings in both domestic and export markets,

“We were able to reach the 50,000th Magnite milestone in less than 15 months, despite headwinds from Covid and the semiconductor crisis. Our employees and supplier partners have made a tremendous contribution to overcoming this crisis with innovative strategies,” said Biju Balendran, MD & CEO, RNAIPL.

Magnite was the first global product launched as part of the Nissan NEXT transformation plan. 50,000 Magnites have been produced in Chennai since its launch, despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and ongoing semiconductor shortages.

Following the launch of Magnite in South Africa and Indonesia last year, the SUV is also available in Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Brunei, Uganda, Kenya, Seychelles, Mozambique, Zambia, Mauritius, Tanzania and Malawi.
