Nissan Evalia Technical Specification

Nissan expects to sell 2000-2500 units of the Evalia every month. The company is targeting 8% market share by FY-2016 and will launch two new models from Datsun by 2014. The Evalia is priced right between the Xylo and Innova. While the Evalia costs more than the Xylo, Nissan has undercut the Innova by a considerable margin. The top end Nissan Evalia and the base Toyota Innova retail for almost the same price. The Innova is a proven product but the Evalia offers more space, more mileage and is much easier to drive as well.
