Nissan to launch 6 new SUVs in India by 2026
Nissan, a big car company, wants to do some exciting things in India. They’re teaming up with Renault, another car company, and investing a lot of money, around Rs 5,300 crore, in India over the next few years. Now, Nissan has shared its plan online, and it’s all about bringing six new SUVs (those big, cool cars that are great for families) to India by 2026. Some of these SUVs will use regular fuel, and some will run on electricity.
Here’s a simpler breakdown of Nissan’s plan:
- Flagship SUV: Nissan will start with its top SUV called the X-Trail. It’s a big, stylish SUV that will compete with other SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner and Volkswagen Tiguan. The Indian version will probably have a special kind of engine that uses both gas and electricity to save fuel.
- Electric SUV: Nissan might also bring a fully electric SUV to India. This could be the Nissan Ariya, which can go a really long way on a single charge. We don’t know all the details about its battery and how it works yet.
- Medium-Size SUV: After the electric SUV, Nissan might introduce another mid-size SUV. This one would be in competition with popular cars like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. It could be the Nissan Juke, which is already sold in other countries. It might come with a turbocharged petrol engine and different gear options.
- Small Models: Nissan is thinking about making three smaller cars too. One of them might be a small MPV (that’s like a mini-van) with seven seats. There’s also talk of a basic electric car, which could compete with the Tata Punch EV.
These plans show that Nissan is really serious about India, and they want to offer a variety of SUVs and electric cars to suit different needs and tastes.
