Renault-Nissan Alliance’s reborn Datsun brand for emerging markets has expanded its ‘GO’ range once again with the unveiling of a new concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The latest is a compact SUV called the GO-Cross, which will no doubt preview a production version for customers in Russia, India, Africa and more (the plan is to expand into yet more new markets).

Datsun isn’t quite committing to a production schedule for the GO-Cross just yet, however, saying instead that the concept is designed to test the potential for such a model should the carmaker choose to build it.

A relatively short story for Datsun since the brand was revived already includes the GO, GO+ and Redi-GO in the GO family, now joined by the GO-Cross.

In keeping with the positive two-letter naming theme, the On-Do is also available for customers in Russia and elsewhere.

Styling for the GO-Cross is borrowed from the other GO models, including the ‘hexagon-style’ front grille which appeared in a teaser image released earlier this month.

The headlight design is new to GO and is accompanied by a high-mounted circular fog lamp, while the concept also sports a rear diffuser, body cladding and wheel-arch protection along with roof-mounted storage bars.

Datsun boss Vincent Cobee said that more than 100,000 examples have been sold since the brand was relaunched, marking the “first phase” of Datsun’s return.

Mr Cobee added that an all-new model would be launched at the beginning of next year based on the Alliance’s CMF-A platform, which strengthens the argument for a road-going version of the GO-Cross.

Datsun revealed no further details about its GO-Cross concept, but power could come from a 1.2 litre petrol engine matched with a five-speed manual transmission already familiar to other Datsun models.
