Made in India , for India
‘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.
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.
Datsun redi-GO, likely to dent the market of its main competitors.
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.
