Buyers opting for Datsun's Go can avail a cash discount of INR 30,000. The offer is valid for the month of December, 2014 only. It includes a INR 15,000 exchange benefit, along with INR 15,000 of additional discounts. The discounts will end on 31st of December, 2014 in India.
Datsun will be providing discount on all f its Go trims. The D, D1 and A models will be offered with INR 30,000 discount. The Japanese manufacturer has faced some criticism recently due to a Global NCAP crash test. Their Go hatchback failed the test and was deemed unsafe in an accident even if it had airbags.
