Global premiere of Datsun brand in India this July
Nissan is all set to bring back the Datsun brand after 32 years to markets like India, Russia, Indonesia and South Africa.
Datsun's first model for India will be a five-door hatchback (internal code: K2), which will be powered by the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol in the Micra. There is no diesel version planned. In terms of size, the Datsun will be almost as spacious as a Micra but considerably lighter. According to the Datsun team, performance is expected to be far superior to the competition, whilst fuel efficiency will match the best in-class.
