The first model to be sold as a Datsun in three decades will start at less than $7,695 when it goes on sale in 2014.
The mystery Datsun has yet to be revealed or have any technical details announced, but Nissan has announced pricing for the car, which will vary depending on what region it’s sold in. One spokesman told Just-Auto
“Specifically, in India, our core offer will be priced below INR400,000. For Indonesia, less than US$10,000. For Russia, the core offer will be below RUB400,000 (US$12,752).”
The outlet reports that the first Datsuns will be Nissan vehicles that have reached the end of their lifecycle, similar to how Nissan sells the Tsuru, a decades old Sentra, in Mexico. These vehicles have long ago had their costs amortized, and can be sold profitably at a low sticker price.
