Aww Shucks, The Nissan Magnite’s Waiting Period Just Got Longer

Nissan will add a third shift to its plant to try and shave off the waiting period by a couple of months


  • Delhi has the longest waiting period, and Kolkata the shortest.

  • Bookings have crossed 30k in just over a month since its launch.

  • It is powered by two petrol engines along with manual and CVT automatic gearbox options.

  • It retails from Rs 5.49 lakh to Rs 9.97 lakh (ex-showroom) and is offered in five variants: XE, XL, XV, XV Premium, and XV Premium (O).

The Nissan Magnite continues to generate popular demand since its launch on December 2 2020 as the carmaker's first sub-4m SUV has already garnered more than 32,800 bookings in just over a month. It has also received a 4-star safety rating from ASEAN NCAP. All this has led to some long waiting periods and it's now extended even further in certain cities. Here’s a closer look at how long these waiting periods can be:


Waiting Period 


Up to 8 months


Up to 6 months


Up to 6 months


Up to 3 months


Up to 4 months


Up to 4 months


While the wait for a Magnite is the shortest in Kolkata, places like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai have waiting periods ranging from 6 to 8 months, which means you could get delivery only around September 2021 if you live in one of these cities. Of course these waiting periods are all depending on the variant ordered. That being said, Nissan will be adding a third shift to its plant to cut down the waiting period, hopefully by even a couple of months.


Nissan recently extended the introductory pricing of the Magnite until further notice--save for the base variant, which has received a price hike of upto Rs 50,000. It retails from Rs 5.49 lakh to Rs 9.97 lakh (ex-showroom) and is offered in five variants: XE, XL, XV, XV Premium, and XV Premium (O). 

It is loaded with features such as an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system,  360-degree camera, 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, air purifier, cruise control, puddle lamps, JBL sound system and ambient lighting. Dual airbags, ISOFIX anchorages, tyre pressure monitor system, traction control and hill start assist are some of the safety equipment on offer. 

Powering the sub-4 metre SUV is a 72PS/96Nm 1.0-litre petrol engine and a 100PS/160Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, with the turbo-petrol engine getting an additional CVT transmission option. 

The Nissan Magnite takes on rivals like the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and the upcoming Tata HBX and Renault Kiger.
