Nissan discontinues Datsun brand in IndiaPosted On: April 24, 2022 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Nissan India has announced the end of production of Datsun vehicles in India. The company, after relaunching the Datsun brand in the country nine years ago, has released an official statement stating that the Datsun cars will no longer be produced in India. In 2020, the company had ceased production in Russia and Indonesia.
“As part of Nissan’s global transformation strategy, Nissan is focusing on core models and segments that bring the most benefit to customers, dealer partners and the business. Production of Datsun redi-GO has ceased at the Chennai Plant (Renault Nissan Automotive India Private Ltd),” the company stated in its press release.
Datsun has been selling three models–the Redi-GO (hatchback), the GO (hatchback), and the GO+ (MPV)–in India and the models will continue to sell until stocks last. The company says it will continue its after-sales service, make parts available, and provide warranty support via the company’s nationwide dealership network.
The made-in-India Datsun models have also made their own space in Nepal in the hatchback segment. Currently, Datsun has two outgoing hatchback models: the new GO and the Redi-GO here. The new Go comes at a starting price of Rs 28.49 lakh and the Redi-GO starts at Rs 25.49 lakh.
