Nissan to expand Datsun sales to Middle East

Carlos Ghosn, the chief executive of Nissan Motor has unveiled plans to expand sales of the company's low-end Datsun brand to the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, Bloomberg has reported. Nissan has said it expects Datsun, the company's third global brand, to account for as much as half of its sales in those markets in five years. Nissan plans to sell Datsun cars in those regions after introducing them in Indonesia, India and Russia starting in 2014, Ghosn said. "We're going to go step by step," he said. "It's going to be affordable."
