Datsun Redi-Go is the brand’s third car for India, after Go hatchback and Go+ MPV. Cheapest of them all, redi-GO has been developed for the first time car buyers in the entry level segment.
To be launched on the 7th of June, redi-GO price will start from INR 2.39 lakh, ex-showroom. It will compete with the likes of Hyundai Eon, Renault Kwid and India’s best selling car, Maruti Alto 800.
Ahead of the launch, brochure of the redi-GO small car has been leaked. As per the leaked brochure, Datsun will offer the red-GO in five variants – D, A T, T(O) and S. Each of this variant will be powered by a 800 cc three cylinder petrol engine generating 54 PS and 72 Nm torque. It will be mated to a five speed manual transmission.
Based on Renault-Nissan Alliance’ CMF-A platform, redi-GO shares a lot with its cousin Renault Kwid. What has allowed Datsun India to keep redi-Go’s price competitive, is its high level of localization, a staggering 98%.
Apart from an affordable price tag, what Datsun is hoping will work as USP is the modern design of Redi-GO. To add further spark, Datsun will offer a total of five styling kits. These are – Easy Kit – Sporty, Easy Kit – Premium, Kool Kit, Urban Kit and Style Kit.
