Here is a look at all the important developments in the auto space this week
Check out the standout features of the all-new Nissan Magnite.
Nissan aims to grab a slice of the burgeoning SUV segment which now commands a share of 27 percent of India’s 2.77 million passenger vehicle pie. The Magnite will come in two petrol engine options.
The new car will be the latest entrant into the compact SUV segment, a segment that is already seeing a tonne of competition coming in from all sides of the auto world and it will be interesting to see what Nissan will do to stand out here.
The new video shows that the silhouette of the car resembles that of the 370Z. So we can expect an evolution of that design. Other small bits include a refreshed Z logo, new alloys and LED headlamps.
We look at cars every day and with the condition our streets usually are in, we never really think of speeding. But what if the roads weren’t the issue? How fast you think you could go and in which car?
"All of these manufacturers are facing the same COVID crisis, but Renault and Nissan are being punished more than the others," Carlos Ghosn said.

Nissan plans to cancel all night shifts at its plant in Oppama, Kanagawa prefecture, and at a production line in Kyushu, southern Japan, between June 29 and July 31, according to the sources, who sought anonymity as the information is not public.
The plan could have been prompted by Carlos Ghosn's push for greater integration between Nissan and alliance partner Renault

The possible cuts come as Nissan prepares to announce its updated mid-term strategy next week. Profits at the automaker have been floundering for the past three years, and the coronavirus pandemic has only piled on urgency and pressure to renew efforts to down size and turnaround the company.

While not a party to these extradition proceedings, Nissan continues to reserve the right to take further legal measures as appropriate.
The new Kicks includes features such as vehicle stability management system, electronic stability control, traction control system, and a hill start assist, and cruise control, among others, the company said.
Overall auto sales rose 4.4% in April, data from the country's biggest auto industry body showed.
The Nissan Kicks is a SUV that rivals the Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos and while the other two cars are already on sale with the latest emission upgrades, the Kicks is slated for a launch as soon when the lockdown period ends.
