Meet what could soon be the cheapest SUV in the world - the Datsun Redi-Go.

The Nissan-owned brand is designed to offer affordable automotive options for developing markets such as India, where this concept model made its debut at the Delhi motor show overnight.

Dimensions of the diminutive Redi-Go concept SUV are unknown, though it rides on a tiny 2350mm wheelbase (100mm shorter than the Datsun Gohatchback), but its short overhangs and a tall body give it a muscular stance.

The regular Go hatchback is powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine teamed to a five-speed manual, and it's expected that a production version of the Redi-Go would use the same powertrain.

"Although the concept remains a styling study at this stage, were it to be put into production it would be priced to target established compact hatchbacks delivering a compelling mix of modernity, quality and innovation," a release from Datsun said.

"If we were to make a car like Datsun Redi-Go concept it would be a segment creator in India, an aspirational car that at the same time is attainable, a car that would be within reach of the first time buyer," said Vincent Cobee, global head of Datsun.

Datsun initiated a global relaunch strategy in 2013, but Nissan Australia has stated on numerous occasions that it has no plans to offer any Datsun products in our market.
