Datsun returns to Sri Lanka 60 years on 
The legendary Datsun brand is returning to Sri Lanka almost 60 years after its initial introduction to the country in 1957. At a special ceremony held in Colombo December 20, the first new Datsun showroom was officially opened by representatives of both Datsun and Associated Motorways (Private) Ltd. (AMW), Nissan Motors long-term partner in Sri Lanka. Future plans call for Datsun cars to be available in seven cities across the country. The inauguration of the new showroom also marked the official start of sales of the companys newest model, Datsun redi-GO. Marketed as an urban cross, Datsun redi-GO is an attractively priced, modern and highly capable vehicle that combines the roominess, agility and efficiency of an urban hatchback with best-in-class ground clearance (185mm) and the rugged looks of a crossover. Aimed at aspirational younger owners ready to take the next step up in their lives, redi-GO pre-launch activities began in September. As the brand makes its official return, 300 Datsun redi-GOs have been already sold, giving the car an impressive 10 per cent share of its market segment in Sri Lanka. Tomonori Muto, General Manager, Datsun Business Unit, said: Theres a new generation of car buyers in Sri Lanka who want a stylish car thats exciting to drive and offers modern engineering with worry-free ownership--all at an attractive price. Datsun redi-GO is that car. We are delighted to be back in Sri Lanka to offer Datsuns newest car to a new generation of Sri Lankan customers. Datsuns return to Sri Lanka makes it the companys 13th global market. We are delighted by the return of Datsun to Sri Lanka. We are confident the fun and freedom offered by Datsun redi-GO is going to appeal to many young Sri Lankan customers, said Yohann de Zoysa, Director-Passenger Vehicles Associated Motorways (Private) Ltd. (AMW)
