Datsun is the word currently going around in the automobile world and why not, the iconic brand is making a strong comeback after 27 years. ‘DAT’ meaning “lightning fast” in Japanese, is what happening the brand itself. Right from concept to design to prototype to production engineering, everything has been done very fast. The man behind the Datsun come back Mr. Carlos Gohsh is emphatic about the Datsun’s re-birth. No wonder Mr. Gohsn has been given an extension of 2 years as Chairman of Nissan Renault alliance by its board members.

The website also mentions about a car built for the new generations and couple of questions why now? and why Datsun? Wait till 15th of July and watch the live telecast of the car launch on Datsun’s official website.

The prototype of the small car has been showed to a band of Indian automobile journalists. According to them, the Datsun small car is big, beautiful and practicle compared to its competitors Maruti A Star, Wagon R and Hyundai i10. An interesting fact has come to light that Datsun’s small car will have bench seats in the front accommodating 3 passengers in comfort. As a result the gear shift lever and hand brakes have been pushed to the dashboard, all these features seen for the first time in India in a small car.

Datsun currently has two products in its pipeline for India and emerging markets like South Africa, Indonesia and Russia. Apart from the small car K2 (the codename of the first car), Datsun intends to bring in Nissan Dayz, a mini MPV to India sometime later. Datsun cars will roll out from Renault-Nissan’s factory at Chennai.


With so much of hype about Datsun, can we expect an automobile revolution as that of the Tata Nano? We feel yes, because Mr. Gohsn is very serious about Indian market and is the only person looking to rival the market leader Maruti Suzuki…
