Nissan is ramping up production to bring down the waiting period from 4 months to 2-3 months.

Nissan has announced that it has received 32,800 bookings for the Magnite in just over a month since its launch.

According to Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, the carmaker had received 5,000 bookings in the first 5 days. The total number of bookings crossed the 15,000 mark in 15 days.

The company claims to have received over 3,800 bookings via its online portal. Also, enquiries for the Magnite have crossed the 1.80 lakh mark.

It has been reported that to cater to the growing demand for the Magnite, Nissan plans to start a third shift at its Chennai plant and ramp up production from 2,700 units per month to 3,500-4,000 units per month. This is expected to bring down the waiting period from the current 4 months to about 2-3 months, depending on the variant.

The Nissan Magnite was launched in December last year. The crossover recently received a 4-star safety rating from ASEAN NCAP.
