Financial Express recently spoke to Nissan India’s vice president Ajay Raghuvanshi who confirmed that the Go+ MPV and an Alto-rivalling hatchback (codenamed as I2) would be the next launches afte the Go in India.

He added that the small hatchback would be the third Datsun, and would compete in the Alto’s segment which is “huge”. According to the newspaper and much common sense, the prices for this Alto-challenger would be between 2-3 lakh rupees while our sources indicate that all the variants of the Go hatchback would not be more than 4 lakh rupees (ex-showroom, across India).

Datsun has planned about 9,000 unit monthly target for the I2 hatch. An entry-sedan, for now, is not being considered says Raghuvanshi. Nissan hopes that the launch of Datsun, and other Nissan models would increase its market share in India from around 1 per cent to about 2.5 per cent. Since Nissan and Renault are a finance partner of Datsun, attractive schemes for Datsun will surely help in sales while the 145 Nissan dealers be a great support.
