CEO Carlos Ghosn on the Return of Datsun
| Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn speaks at a press conference in Yokohama Wednesday, taking questions on the return of the Datsun brand.
CEO Carlos Ghosn: I'm sure everybody knows that yesterday we announced the revival, the relaunch, of the Datsun brand as a complement to, on the one side, Infiniti, and on the other, Nissan.
This is something that has been prepared within our Power 88 plan and will be a pillar of offering mobility for all, making sure that people—particularly in high growth markets—will have an offer from our company.
A lot of people in emerging markets today are driving motorcycles, some of them are driving used cars, others can buy a new car but, in fact, it's antiquated with very old technology and a very old platform – cars which have been there for 20 years or more. What we want to offer is a modern, affordable car—something that people will be very happy to own, a product that is generous, giving them exactly what they want, and at an affordable price.
