Nissan’s cost effective car brand ‘Datsun’ has made an announcement that it will start accepting pre-bookings for the car from 3rd January till 14th January 2015. Prospect buyer can book Datsun Go+ MPV for the fully refundable amount of Rs. 11,000 at any Nissan dealership across India. First 100 customers to pre-book will also get a welcome pack that includes free accessories at the time of delivery.
Datsun to launch Go+ MPV on 15th January 2015 and it will become India’s first Sub 4 metre compact MPV on that day at an attractive price. Go+ MPV will be launched in four variants- D, D1, A and T but with one engine option i.e. 1.2L three cylinder petrol engine producing 67bhp [email protected] and 104NM [email protected] with fuel efficiency of 20.62 km/l.
Making the announcement, Guillaume Sicard, President, Nissan India Operations, said, “We are happy to offer our latest product Datsun GO+, a segment-creating Compact MPV to customers in India. The Datsun GO+ is our second product in the market after the Datsun GO and reiterates our commitment to India.”
“The Datsun brand stands for affordable mobility and the Datsun GO+ is a product for those families who prefer a bigger vehicle for both in-city and long distance travel for work as well as leisure. We opened pre-bookings today for customers who would like to be the early ones to own the new Datsun”, he added.
Datsun Go+ MPV measures 3995 in length, 1635mm wide and 1485mm height, with the wheelbase of 2450mm and 170mm ground clearance it’s enough to tackle our roads. Cargo capacity is only 48 liters which can be expended to 347 liters with third row folded. Major disappointment would the absence of safety features like airbags and ABS which are not available even as option.
As far as features are concerned it will get air conditioning, mobile charging unit, front power windows etc. We are not sure about the pricing but expect Go plus to price just over Rs. 4-5.5 lakh and it will compete with Maruti Ertiga and Honda Mobilio.
It will be interesting to see despite of absence of basic safety features and failure of its hatchback model in recent NCAP crash test, how people will respond to the new Go+ MPV.
