Carlos Ghosn, President and CEO, Nissan Motor, unveiled the first new Datsun car --- the all-new Datsun GO in Gurgaon, on the outskirts of New Delhi. The GO will be on sale in India in early 2014. Datsun is the third brand for the Nissan Motor Company along with the company’s Nissan and Infiniti brands. Datsun will play an important role in the Nissan Power 88 mid-term business plan.
“This is an historic day for Nissan Motor Company and for our customers and partners in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets. It’s also an exciting moment for many women and men here in India who – today – come one step closer to realising the dream of purchasing a car,” said Ghosn.
The five-door, front-wheel drive hatchback will come with a 1.2 litre engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission that offers optimal response time and agility in congested traffic. Experts at CarNStyle and Motown India suggest that the car could be in the range of Rs 3 lakh to Rs 4 lakh.
With compact body dimensions (width – 1635mm; height – 1485mm; length– 3785mm), the car is spacious inside thanks to a wide stance and large wheelbase (2450mm). The GO offers ample headroom and an expanded front seating configuration. The name of the new car is inspired by the first Datsun, the DAT-GO, launched almost a century ago in Japan. Back then the cars brought mobility to people who had never dreamed of car ownership before. The reignited Datsun brand and the Datsun GO will bring a similar combination of aspiration and trustworthiness.
