Miller88 I've been looking at the Versa since it's a pretty cheap basic car. I $5000 car would pique my intereest.

lyonsroar A $5000 car won't fly in the US I don't think. Can US safety regulations be met for 5k?

Agreed. The "old is new" philosophy working out so far for Mini and Fiat. Why wouldn't it work for Datsun?

This article says 6 new models will be introduced starting at $3k. There is hope for a 510 or 240 "datsun" in the higher price range marketed for Americans the way I see it.

Kipp I think it could be a good move for them. Would be cool to have something like that here as well. I know alot of people that would gladly buy one for 3-5k. and yes, i know that won't happen here though.

Exactly;

"in many underdeveloped countries, car ownership at any age remains more of a dream than a reality. In India, only 38 people out of 1,000 owned a car in 2010, compared with 808 people per 1,000 in the U.S., according to one study. "

That's 80% for the US and only 3.8% in India. You bet they want to cash in on that market.
