The Datsun GO-cross Concept uncovered at the Tokyo Motor Show is said to preview a low-cost, entry-level crossover for Nissan’s newly revived budget brand.
Set to take on high growth markets such as South Africa, India, Russia and South East Asia, Datsun says the concept “investigates the market potential of a cross-over with spirit and a sense of adventure.”
“This is a significant day for Datsun. We have successfully completed the first phase of our return, and feel proud that through our vehicles more than 100,000 customers have been able to make their dream of personal mobility a reality,” announced Vincent Cobee, Global Head of Datsun.
The Datsun brand was resurrected in 2013 having been “buried” for nearly three decades. It was re-launched in India with the Datsun GO, where the budget car is manufactured.
Cobee added that Datsun intends to expand its sales and service networks in its four existing markets, while adding two new models in India.
“We will launch a totally new model at the beginning of 2016, which will be the first Nissan Motor model based on the new Renault-Nissan Alliance CMF-A architecture,” said Cobee.
If it all pans out, the production version of the Datsun GO-cross Concept will hit its markets sometime in 2016.
