Nissan Green Lights the $7000 Datsun for India

Datsun name makes a comeback for emerging markets

If you roll into any Nissan dealership around the United States, about the cheapest new car you're going to find will be in the $14,000 range in the form of a manual transmission Versa with no options. Nissan is set to relaunch its Datsun brand with a car selling for only $7000 in India. Nissan hopes of the resurgence of the Datsun brand will help fuel growth in emerging markets.

More than a few people are hoping that the Datsun brand will make its way to the United States as well. It would be great to see Datsun become Nissan's Scion and possibly mark the return of lower-priced exciting cars along the lines of the original Z car.

The little $7000 Datsun car will be a five-seat hatchback and is expected to launch in India next year at Rs.400,000. That would equate to $6670 here in the US. The vehicle will also come the Indonesian Russia with versions tailored for each market in terms of price and sizing.
