Nissan India is now offering a massive discount of Rs. 1.15 lakh on its only SUV for the Indian market – the Kicks. The Kicks is struggling to sell in the Indian market thanks to the overall slowdown that the market is facing, and the Japanese automaker is stuck with a large inventory that needs to be cleared before April 2020, the month when the Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms come into force across India. The discounts on the Kicks is divided into the following components: cash discount up to Rs 40,000, exchange bonus up to Rs 40,000, corporate discount up to Rs 10,000, extended warranty valued at Rs 20,500, and 24*7 roadside assistance in 1500+ cities. Nissan is also offering attractive offers on the Datsun Redi-GO, the Go and Go+.
Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. had this to say about the latest discount offers on Nissan cars,
Nissan as a customer centric brand is offering the highest value proposition to the customers through Red Weekends’ in a very innovative way to bring New Year festivities through Nissan and Datsun products with the first-time best finance offer of 6.99% for 36 months.
