Is the Datsun redi-GO the next little wonder?
Datsun, Nissan's low cost car brand, has revealed the next product in its international lineup - the redi-GO (yes, that is how are supposed to write it). It will be launched in India around May 2016 , and compete in the ultra-value compact-hatchback segment in India. For now, this segment is dominated by the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 (combined sales of over 20,000 units a month) and the Renault Kwid (sales approaching 10,000 units a month) - the Datsun redi-GO is expected to do better than the company's other two offerings in the country - the Datsun GO hatchback and the Datsun GO+ compact-MPV.

Nissan subsidiary Datsun today took off the covers of its production stage Datsun redi-GO in Delhi. The Datsun redi-GO is a small car which will be launched in India in June this year. The Datsun redi-GO is the third vehicle to be added to Datsun's portfolio of products.
Based on the low-cost CMF-A platform, the Datsun redi-GO draws its styling from the redi-GO concept car. The hexagonal front grille is a familiar concept across almost all the company's cars. The car comes with sleek headlamps, separate LED DRLs on the bumper, 185mm ground clearance with the rear end sporting vertical taillamps, a contoured tailgate with separate reflectors on the lower bumper.

‘Imagine a car with the drivability of a hatchback and the ruggedness of a sports utility vehicle (SUV)’. This is the pitch which Japanese auto maker Nissan is making for its latest car – redi-GO under the Datsun brand.
To be launched in June, this will be the third offering from Datsun in India (after the Datsun GO and the Datsun GO+). The redi-GO will be competing with the likes of market leader Maruti Suzuki India’s Alto 800, the Eon from Hyundai Motor India and the Kwid from Nissan’s alliance partner Renault India.
