Early this month, we brought to you a comprehensive review of the upcoming Datsun Go hatchback (CLICK HERE for Datsun Go Review). We already knew that the new Datsun Go India launch will happen in the middle of this month and now, it has emerged that the Datsun Go prices in India will start at INR 3 lakhs. While we always knew that the Datsun Go would come to us at an attractive price point, a starting price of just INR 3 lakhs is sure to leave the rivals sleep-deprived. Come to think of it, currently, there is not even a single car that retails for INR 3 lakhs and offers similar levels of space, performance and efficiency.
It is further being said that the new Datsun Go will commence its Indian innings with as many as three trim levels (D, A and T), all competitively priced. The base variant, which will be priced at INR 3 lakhs, will be sold alongside a mid-variant that will be priced around INR 3.5 lakh and a top-end model that will be available for INR 3.8 lakhs (all prices are ex-showroom Delhi). Datsun has already dispatched the first batch of Datsun Go top end models to showroom. Datsun Go bookings are already underway and the new car can be booked for an amount of INR 11,000.This amount is re-fundable in case of cancellation of booking at a later stage. Datsun Go deliveries are likely to commence around the end of this month.
At such an attractive price point, the new Datsun Go, equipped with good engine, spacious interiors and a modern design, should give rivaling car makers a reason to be really worried. Also, on the other hand, it might very well be what the entry level B segment hatchback buyers have always been looking for.
