Nissan Reveals Future Model Lineup for India

In the beginning of 2023, Renault and Nissan shared their long-term plans for India, involving a substantial investment of Rs 5,300 crores. This investment would realize enhanced manufacturing capability and also help both companies expand their product portfolio for consumers in our country. In view of that, with the current sealing of their commitment towards India, here are some basic details of what one can expect in 2024.

Nissan Magnite Facelift

With the Magnite doing quite well for the company, we expect the brand to introduce the facelifted version of this subcompact SUV sometime next year. Slated for a mid-2024 introduction, expect the vehicle to feature upgrades on its exterior design alongside an extended equipment list. Mechanically remaining the same, both home production and exports of the SUV in the international markets are expected to grow from the total current number of 25,000 - 30,000 units to 40,000 - 50,000 cars every year.

Currently, Nissan Magnite retails between Rs 5.99 lakh to Rs 10.66 lakh (ex-showroom). Considering that we are towards the end of the year, the Discount offer on the SUV ranges up to Rs 90,000. Interested in buying the Magnite, then head to CarLelo to avail the best deal.

Duster-based SUV

Besides the facelifted Magnite, the automaker will be looking to use its global collaboration with Renault to introduce a compact SUV based on the Duster. It is expected that the French manufacturer would be bringing in the Duster first followed by Nissan who would look to introduce the vehicle in 2025. Design wise the four-wheeler will share the majority of its components with the SUV. Both products will be underpinned by the same CMF-B platform and will be manufactured in Chennai.

Bigster-based SUV

Similar to the competition, the brand will be looking to expand its product portfolio with the inclusion of a 3-row compact SUV. Believed to be based on the Duster, the vehicle will feature an extended wheelbase to accommodate the third row of seats. Its design elements for the exterior and interior would be on the lines of the Dacia Bigster Concept revealed back in 2021. It will use the CMF-B platform from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. When introduced it will compete with the likes of the Tata Safari and Hyundai Alcazar.

Triber-based 3-Row MPV

Further, the brand will look to expand its horizon in the MPV segment with the launch of a 3-row vehicle. Unlike the Nissan Evalia that was made ground up, this upcoming MPV will be based on the Renault Triber. It will be made in Chennai and will be positioned below the Magnite to appeal to the mass market. When launched its rivals would be the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Toyota Rumion among others.

Entry-Level EV

The demand for entry-level electric vehicles is growing in the country. In response to this trend, Renault and Nissan are collaborating on a new entry-level hatchback. It will utilize the CMF-AEV platform and is intended to be a global product, with both manufacturers releasing their own versions.

Nissan X-Trail

There have been sightings of the All-New Nissan X-Trail being tested in India. So, the possibility is high that it could be brought in through the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route. If launched, the Nissan X-Trail SUV will compete with vehicles such as the Hyundai Tucson, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Citroen C5 in its segment.
