Japanese auto maker Nissan today said it will price below Rs 4 lakh the small car that it plans to launch under the Datsun brand in India by 2014.
The company had last month said two products from the Datsun brand would be launched in India, Indonesia and Russia by FY 14 and another one would follow three years after these have been launched.
"Specifically, in India, our core offer will be priced below (Rs) 4 Lakh. For Indonesia, less than $10,000. For Russia, the core offer will be below 400,000 Rubles," a Nissan India spokesperson said.
In order to achieve the goal of launching low-cost small cars, the Franco-Japanese auto alliance Renault-Nissan had decided to end its sourcing collaboration with Bajaj Auto and chose to look for options in countries such as China and Russia.
"We have decided against further collaboration with Bajaj on a four-wheeler vehicle. Outside India, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is addressing price-entry segments in many emerging economies, such as Indonesia, China and Russia," a spokesperson of Nissan Motor had said.
