Nissan has officially brought back Datsun with today’s debut of the all-new Datsun GO, which will be on sale in India in early 2014. The Datsun GO is designed for customers in high-growth markets and its name is inspired by the first Datsun, the DAT-GO, which launched almost a century ago in Japan. Datsun models will be individually developed for different markets, but the concept will follow a common inspiration. Datsun GO will be the first of several Datsun models that will be launched later in 2014 in Indonesia, Russia and South Africa.
The Datsun GO is a five-door, front-wheel drive hatchback that will come with a 1.2L engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Datsun GO is expected to be “a category up” in its price range, attractively priced below INR 400,000. Although its exterior dimensions are small, the GO will fit five passengers and also comes with a smartphone Mobile Docking Station.
Datsun vehicles will start sales in India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa from 2014.
