Nissan India announced on Monday that shipments of its recently released subcompact SUV Magnite had begun to Indonesia, South Africa, and Nepal, with 1,200 units built for outside markets through May.
Magnite was launched in the Indian market by the Japanese automaker in December of last year.
The B-segment sports utility vehicle is manufactured at the Renault Nissan Automotive factory in Chennai, and is built on the idea of 'Make in India, Make for the World.'
In a statement, the automaker said it had produced over 15,010 Magnites through May, including 1,220 for export to Indonesia, South Africa, and Nepal.

The new vehicle has duplicated its success in India in Nepal, with over 760 bookings in the first 30 days of its February introduction in a market with monthly passenger vehicle sales of 1,580 units, according to the company.

"Built on the philosophy of 'Make in India, Make for the World', the all-new Nissan Magnite will explore more export markets after the overwhelming customer response it has received in the Nepal market," said Sinan Ozkok, President, Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd.
