Datsun redi-GO has registered over 10000 bookings in the country since its launch last month. A large portion of the bookings have come from metropolitan areas and Tier 2 cities. Datsun redi-GO is available at 227 Nissan and Datsun sales touchpoints across India at a starting price of Rs. 2.39 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Datsun redi-GO delivers superior fuel economy of 25.17kmpl and comes with an attractive 2 year/unlimited kilometres standard warranty.
Arun Malhotra, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Datsun redi-GO is bringing a lot of new energy and freshness to the entry car segment. Its eye-catching design and best-in-class features are getting noticed as more and more customers choose to go with redi-GO. We have started deliveries of redi-GOs this month to customers across the country and are delighted by the way Datsun redi-GO is being embraced by the younger generation in the country”. The redi-GO also comes with another exciting segment-first - an optional warranty for 2 or 3 years/unlimited kilometres with free roadside assistance. This gives redi-GO owners the option of up to 5 years/unlimited kilometres warranty coverage.
The redi-GO hatch showcases unique Japanese design elements expressing ‘YUKAN’, meaning brave and bold. It also features ‘Tall-Boy’ styling offering best-in-class ground clearance of 185 mm. The range-topping variants feature driver's airbag and daytime running lights (DRLs) as standard features. It was introduced in five variants: A, D, T, T(O), and S. Under the hood, the hatch packs a 0.8L 3-cylinder motor which develops a maximum power of 53bhp and peak torque of 72Nm. It is linked to a 5-speed manual transmission, while speculations of introduction of an AMT gearbox at a later stage are still doing the rounds. It challeneges the likes of Renault Kwid, Maruti Alto 800, Hyundai Eon and Chevrolet Spark.
