The LCV will be manufactured at the Hosur facility for a market launch during the second quarter of 2011-12. The vehicle will not bear Nissan logos.

Powered using a 3-cylinder turbocharged CRDI engine, it produces 55hp and is offered in three variants – a base model with manual steering, a mid model with power steering and a top-end model hosting luxuries like air conditioning, power steering and attractive dual tone interiors.

Both BS3 and BS4 versions of the mini truck will be sold.
