Japanese car maker, Nissan, has officially started accepting the bookings for Datsun Go in India.
Production of the Datsun Go commenced on the 4th of this month at the Renault-Nissan’s plant situated at Oragadam, near Chennai. The car can be booked paying a sum of INR 11,000. and deliveries are being promised by end of March 2014. Datsun had showcased the Go hatchback along with the Redi-Go hatch concept at the Auto Expo 2014 this month.
The Datsun Go will be available with a 1.2-liter petrol motor, which is identical to the 1.2 liter 3 pot engine found in the Nissan Micra Active. Datsun claims that the car will deliver a fuel efficiency of 20.6 kmpl and a comprehensive two-year/unlimited km warranty will be on offer with the car.
The Datsun Go is expected to be priced under INR 4 lakh. The Datsun Go is built using 90% of the components which are manufactured locally. This will help the company to have a really aggressive pricing for the hatchback. Datsun will be producing 60,000 Go hatchbacks annually at the aforementioned facility, with the target of sales in India only initially. However, the company will be exporting the car to other markets at a later stage.
