Now, the bigger question is, what could be the next product from Datsun portfolio, and which country will host its global premier. Our sources said that the next Datsun product will be a compact sedan, based on the Go hatchback. Russia or South Africa could be the places where the company will unveil the vehicle. We expect the compact sedan to be premiered in India at the 2014 Auto Expo alongside the compact MPV. There is also a possibility of a compact crossover for the Indian buyers, as the compact SUV market is growing at a brisk pace in the country.
