And Nissan is hoping to set new lows for pricing for a global auto maker, offering the cheapest Datsun model for about $3,000 to $5,000. The lowest price is nearly a third the price of its most inexpensive car, the $8,000 Tsuru compact sold in Mexico.
I like the nameplate but its going to be a pretty lowly car if they stick to that 3-5k price... although i doubt most of us will get to see them in person.
