Nissan's low-cost brand Datsun is gearing up to launch the highly anticipated redi-Go in India as early as April. The small car from the company, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2014, is reportedly set to make its market entry April 14.
Datsun redi-Go, expected to be priced lower than Renault Kwid, is based on the same platform that underpins the Kwid hatchback. Datsun currently has two other models GO hatchback and GO+ MPV in the domestic market, and hopes to expand its reach with redi-Go.
Earlier reports had said that the company has started the trial production of redi-Go at the Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Oragadam, Chennai. In terms of styling and features, redi-Go is likely to come packed with the same features as Kwid. Early reports said redi-Go will have the silhouette of the concept model unveiled at the Auto Expo.
With more than 95 per cent localisation, redi-Go is expected to carry a price tag of under Rs 3.5 lakh. Powering the small car is likely to be an 800cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission. An automated manual transmission (AMT) version is also likely to be offered.
