Datsun K2 01

Datsun, in its effort to make a comeback, has officially released sketches of its first model that is set to be unveiled together with the brand’s new look on 15th July 2013 in New Delhi, India.

The five-door hatchback, said to adapt Nissan Micra or March’s platform, is codenamed K2. This could mean that the K2 will be powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder power unit from the Micra/March. It is set to go on sale in India next year, followed by other high-growth markets like Indonesia, Russia and, initially, South Africa.

Datsun also promises to “offer engaging driving experience, peace of mind ownership and accessibility at the right and transparent price with a competitive Total Cost of Ownership” through their future models that will benefit from Nissan’s experience as one of a major carmaker.
