The Datsun concept will have its world premiere Feb. 5 at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014.

Nissan’s Datsun unit on Jan. 22 released a sketch of a concept car, saying it “represents a possible direction for the future expansion of Datsun’s model lineup for up-and-coming young customers in high-growth markets such as India.” The actual concept car will have its world premiere Feb. 5 as part of the Delhi Auto Expo 2014. Datsun already has one production car en route; called the Go, it’s a five-seat hatchback with a 1.2-L engine and 5-speed manual transmission. It is slated to go on sale in India early this year at a price below INR 400,000. The Go is built at a plant near Chennai. Much of Go R&D and engineering was done locally. Japan-based Nissan employs about 12,000 people in India and considers Chennai “a strategic hub for production, R&D, and exports.”
