Nissan to unveil new Datsun car in Indonesia on 17th Sep 2013
After showing the first Datsun car in India back in July this year, Nissan is now going to show yet another Datsun car, and this time it will be showcased in Indonesia. To premiere on 17th September 2013, this new Datsun car will be the first of two cars, which will be offered in Indonesia this year.
Apart from this, Nissan Motor Indonesia recently appointed PT Mitra Pinasthika Mustika Tbk (MPM) as their dealer partner in Indonesia, as the company prepares to launch the Datsun brand in the country next year. Nissan aims to capture a 8% market share in the global auto industry by 2016 under the Nissan 88 strategy. The launch of Datsun products aligns with their growth plans.
Targeting markets in India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa, Datsun GO is the companyâ€™s first product to wear the budget vehicle badge. Priced under INR 4 lakhs for its fully loaded variant, the Go resembles the Nissan Micra when it comes to size. 100 kgs lighter than Micra, GO sports a 1.2 liter three cylinder petrol engine which though offering less power, gives better fuel economy, which is a highpoint for attracting buyers of affordable hatchbacks.
