Datsun India has announced that pre-orders for the redi-GO hatch would start from May 1, 2015 at a fully refundable down payment of Rs. 5,000 at Nissan dealerships across the country. The company also revealed that deliveries of the Datsun redi-GO would start from June. The redi-Go will be priced between Rs. 2.5 - 3.5 Lakhs, while the ex-showroom prices and variants will be announced during the launch in June. Prospective customers can also book the Datsun redi-GO online through Snapdeal.com, India’s leading ecommerce platform.
Being designed, developed and manufactured locally, the Datsun redi-GO is touted as the first urban-cross of India by the company. It is being projected as the unique fusion of compact crossover and hatchback. Making the announcement, Arun Malhotra, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd., said, "Created specifically for India and manufactured here, we are confident the Datsun redi-GO will delight our customers. It’s this country’s first urban-cross vehicle, and a testament to our commitment to bring our best to India. From the wheels up, Datsun redi-GO was designed to bring fun and freedom to our customers and shake-up the conventional compact hatchback segment.” Just so you know, Nissan currently has 217 outlets covering 165 cities, with plans to establish 300 sales and service outlets by the end of March 2017.
The redi-GO would be Datsun's new entry-level vehicle, while sitting below the GO hatchback. Under the bonnet, it would carry an all-new 0.8L, 3-cylinder petrol engine, which would be paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The company claims that the redi-GO would get high seating position and best in class ground clearance of 185mm. Datsun, Nissan's budget-friendly brand, has also launched the ‘Datsun India App’ to keep customers updated on the latest news about the Datsun redi-GO. The customers will also have an option to book the car from this App. The Datsun India App can be downloaded from Google Play store. “With the new redi-GO, we continue to expand and enhance our product offering for young people in India ready to take a step forward in their lives. We will be taking pre-booking orders starting May 1 for customers who are eager to be among the first to own this new offering from Datsun," added Malhotra.
