The reintroduced auto brand, Datsun, has brought some exceptional hopes for low-cost vehicle segments in the developing markets. The Japanese brand which was abolished in 1986 came back to life with global debut of its GO hatchback that company is developing for emerging markets like India, Indonesia, South Africa and Russia. The GO hatchback seems extremely promising and potent for its segment. Similarly, the GO+ MPV is also expected to change the company's fortunes in its respective markets with its competitive and utilitarian package.

Surprisingly, Datsun today released a sketch of a new lesser-known model which is very likely to counter the entry-segment hatchback cars like Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon. The company is developing the new model, speculated to be codenamed as I2 concept, in collaboration with Renault under their partnership alliance. The model will be based on the new generation CMF (Compact Module Family) platform that is supposed to underpin 14 new models from Renault, Nissan and Datsun brands in the coming years.

Datsun has been promoting the GO hatchback across Tier-1 cities in India since a while now. The model is expected to get introduced before the mid of 2014 in the country, followed by the GO+ MPV. The company is all set to reveal the GO+ MPV at upcoming AutoExpo alongside the GO hatchback, where the new I2 concept is also expected to attract a lot eyeballs.
