The new model is created mainly for the Indian market. The reborn Datsun brand is aimed for high-growth markets like India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa with product launches in 2014.
New Datsun models will be individually developed for different markets, tough they will all follow a common inspiration.

“Datsun will bring competitive products and services, modern and aspirational, while at the same time reassuring, providing superior value and specifically developed for the emerging and ambitious new Middle Class in high-growth markets. 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.
The new model is internally known as the K2, and reportedly based on the Nissan Micra platform. Tthree-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engine with a different output is very likely under the bonnet.
