Nissan is also working on an entry-level EV based on the CMF-AEV platform. It could compete with the Tata Tiago.ev. Renaultโ€™s version of the small EV is also said to be on the cards.

The fifth product that Nissan has lined up for the Indian market is the refreshed Magnite. The Magnite facelift is expected to get a few cosmetic changes and new features. It is expected to be launched sometime next year.
