Nissan NIO Subscription Plans - All You Need To Know

Updated On: 20 July 2021 Jatin Jhamb

Buying a car on a subscription is not a very common practice in the Indian market but still, carmakers have increasingly started bringing in subscription plans to lure consumers. Among the latest to join the fray is Nissan-Datsun, which has brought in some lucrative schemes to establish a stronger foothold in the market. Dubbed NIO Subscription Plans, the branding is simply an abbreviation for 'Nissan Intelligent Ownership'. But what makes Nissan NIO Subscription Plans an 'intelligent' choice? Well, let's try to understand just that -

In this plan, both Nissan and Datsun have joined hands with Orix for offering car subscription plans. Through this, the carmaker targets the young buyers who plan to own a variety of cars but without being tied down to them for a long term basis and also avoiding the hassle of updating the pollution, RTO, insurance and among several other things.

As of now, you get Redi-GO from Datsun while Nissan offers this plan on both its SUVs - Magnite and Kicks. All these are popular vehicles from the carmaker and give the subscribers a sense of owning a world-class car, albeit, in an easier manner. Currently, this subscription-based service can be availed in three major cities - Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad and Chennai. In future, the carmaker plans to extend the service to Bengaluru, Mumbai and Pune.

One of the highlights of the NIO Subscription Plan is that you can drive home a car without having to make any sort of downpayment. You simply have to choose the duration of your plan - 24 months, 36 months or 48 months. Here, the insurance of the vehicle, road tax, registration, PUC and even periodic maintenance is something you won't need to spend on. Furthermore, you will be driving a car with black-on-white registration plates just like you would in a private buyer.

Additionally, ORIX is also ensuring that the subscribers get road side assistance, battery replacement if there's any issue, cost of all the paperwork involved in the process and even free tyre replacement in case of a manufacturing defect. Given below are the prices of various subscription plans the carmaker offers under its new initiative-
