Nissan removes Datsun, Japanese Dacia. Unlike the Romanian brand Renault, the Japanese manufacturer’s experiment with cheap cars turned out to be a real fiasco. So Nissan is throwing in the towel and announcing this Monday, April 25th that it is suspending production. Less than a decade after it was launched under the supervision of former CEO Carlos Ghosn. “Production of Datsun Redi-GO – similar to the cheap Renault Kwid – will stop at the Chennai factory” in India, according to Nissan. About 7,000 units of this edition were sold in 2021, a spokesman for the group said. Against… 603,000 Dacia (Europe or Maghreb). And, if we consider the low-cost models sold under the Renault brand outside Europe, we reach 1,150,000!
