Leading automaker Nissan Motor's Magnite has over 30,000 confirmed bookings from customers across India. The sub-5-lakh SUV is orchestrating a strategic turnaround for Nissan despite the corona pandemic. This is important for an automaker that could sell only 5,448 vehicles in the first eight months of the ongoing fiscal.
According to 30,000 were the number of bookings till Thursday evening. The final tally could even be higher. A dealer said that They have over 2,000 customers waiting for the Magnite deliveries. The maximum number of bookings came in the last fortnight when Magnite was able to snatch customers off from pricier Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza and the Kia Sonet.
It is a great comeback for the company. A year ago, Nissan Motor, one of the leading Japanese carmakers, was on the verge of collapse in the Indian market. It was written off and was fading into oblivion.
