An undisguised Datsun sedan was spotted somewhere in Russia, ahead of a very possible launch later this year.

Details about the low-cost Datsun sedan are not available at this point but it is believed the model will be based on the Lada Granta which is actually based on the Lada Kalina. This platform was created by Renault in collaboration with Russian carmaker AvtoVAZ and was likely used for this sedan which will reportedly receive a hatchback derivative late this year.

Production of the Datsun sedan will take place in Russia and order books will allegedly open in April. The aforementioned five-door hatchback will likely be unveiled in August at the Moscow Motor Show.
