Nissan re-launches Datsun and unveils 'Datsun Go' for 4 Lakhs

It's been all of 32 years since the last Datsun rolled its wheels on Indian shores and now after all these years, the popular Japanese manufacturer is all set to make a comeback with an all-new car that you see here, christened the Go.

This all new small car will lead the company’s future line-up. Carlos Ghosn, President and CEO of Nissan, who revealed the Go today, believes that there is an immense potential for a well-engineered, entry-level car.

The Go small car will go on sale next year and will come with sub-4 lakh pricing. We reckon the base-spec model could be priced around Rs 3.5 lakh region, pitching it alongside the recently launched Micra Active.

Speaking of which, the Go shares its wheelbase with the Micra however, it is slightly longer than the latter, hinting at a roomier cabin. Inside, Datsun is offering two-tone interiors and plenty of equipment to appeal to a wide variety of small car buyers.

The car will be sold in India for less than 400,000 rupees from next year and will be manufactured at Nissan and partner Renault SA'(RENA.PA) 400,000-cars-per-year plant outside Chennai, southern India.

Nissan may also export Datsun cars from India to South Africa, Mann said.
Go will be followed by other models over the next three years, Nissan has said. "The price could go even lower (than the price of the Go)," Mann said, declining to elaborate.
