Datsun Go 14

Datsun is back, ladies and gentlemen. To mark their return, the brand who used to represent Nissan outside Japan has unveiled the “Go”, a homage to the first ever Datsun, the Dat-Go. 

While technical specifications of the Go is nowhere to be seen at the moment, we do know that the Go will be powered by a certain 1.2-litre engine coupled to a five-speed manual, said to be taken from Nissan March or Micra. Although modest, the Go has a Mobile Docking Station for smartphones. The small car seats five people and offers the best budget automobile for the growing young generation.

CEO Carlos Ghosn said, “We’re bringing it back and giving it a modern shape, with modern technology that is particularly aimed at the high-growth market, addressing the segments where Nissan has no offer.”

The Go is expected to be priced below 400,000 rupees in India and is expected to contribute half of Nissan’s group-wide sales by 2016. Expansions to other markets such as Indonesia, Russia and South Africa by the end of 2014 are in the pipeline.
