Datsun previews new-gen model with sketches
Datsun has revealed a new design sketch that previews the first model of the brand’s comeback, that will be based on the Nissan Micra and will be unveiled on July 15th in India.
The car will be the first product aimed for the Indian market – and the first of the future Datsun model line-up to be launched from 2014.
The premiere event will not only unveil the new model, but also introduce the Datsun brand whose return to the market was announced in March 2012.
The brand will target high-growth markets like India, Indonesia and Russia in 2014 to be followed by South Africa later in the year.
Although Datsun models will be individually developed for different markets, the concept will follow a common inspiration.
All future Datsun models will offer up-and-coming customers in high-growth markets an engaging driving experience, peace of mind ownership and accessibility at the right and transparent price with a competitive Total Cost of Ownership.
These product values will be supported by Nissan Motor Company’s experience as a global car manufacturer and technical expertise for local optimized solutions.
“The Datsun cars will be locally developed with the support of Nissan Motor Company engineers and stylists and will be locally produced”, said Vincent Cobee, Head of Datsun.
