Posted on: Aug 21, 2013 - 10:35am IST

Nissan has showcased the Datsun Go to international journalists at the ongoing Nissan 360 event that is taking place in Irvine, California.

The Go, which marks the return of the Datsun brand after a three decade long sabbatical, is also the first 21st century Datsun car. It had its world premiere on July 15th and since then, has not been showcased anywhere else.

The golden yellow body color is new to the Datsun Go, which premiered in an Alto blue.

And for good reason as well. Datsun has announced that it would focus only on India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa. Markets such as America and Europe would not see Datsun badged cars and this showcasing is maybe to give Americans an idea of the Datsun brand in other markets.

The Datsun Go would be sharing space with 100 other Nissan and Infiniti vehicles, both from production and concept categories. The month long Nissan 360 event would bring the largest number of concept vehicles under one roof, says the company.

Carlos Ghosn, CEO and president of Nissan said –

Nissan is proud to be at the cutting-edge of automotive technology, with exciting prospects that will help shape the future use, brand appeal and environmental impact of vehicles amid continued global growth in overall vehicle demand.
