Datsun’s 100-year heritage isn’t sleeping anymore, and makes a comeback in India next week with an all small car, Datsun Go. March 19 will see the 1st Datsun cars sold in the 21st century, with initial deliveries for the brand are planned in India. The dawn of a new day brings to life Datsun’s promise of bringing back a marque that made car ownership mainstream in Japan and other countries.
Datsun GO gets on the road exactly a hundred years after the first DAT car was launched in Japan. Before closing operations, Datsun sold more than 20 million vehicles in 190 countries.
Datsun’s has planned celebration events for March 19 and March 20 in the Indian cities of Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata to hand over keys to its first customers here. Datsun GO will be sold through a network of more than 120 Datsun dealer outlets across the country. Detailed pricing will be announced on March 19th. Nissan Motor Private India Limited will distribute Datsun vehicles in India. Here’s a detailed Datsun Go drive review.
Last month, the Datsin Go+ MPV was showcased at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. Global expansion plans are rapid, and new Datsun models will be introduced in Indonesia, Russia and South Africa later this year. The 1st Datsun Russia car will be unveiled on April 4th, 2014.
