Datsun India is all set to launch the redi-GO 1-litre in India. The automaker has already commenced the pre-bookings for the car from July 11, 2017.
Customers can pre-book the redi-GO 1-litre with a booking amount of Rs 10,000 at Nissan and Datsun dealerships. The booking amount is fully refundable. The deliveries will commence from July 26, 2017.
The redi-GO 1-litre is based on the same platform which underpins the Renault Kwid. The new redi-GO draws power from a 1-litre engine producing 67bhp and 91Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Datsun claims that the new engine is equipped with Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (iSAT). The new tech offers high fuel efficiency which delivers an ARAI certified mileage of 22.04km/l.
Datsun offers the new 1-litre engine only on the top-of-the-range models, the T(O) and S variants. Both the variants are equipped with features such as keyless entry, LED DRLs and an all-black interior. The 1-litre variant is expected to launch on July 26, 2017.
The redi-GO has been a successful product for Datsun in the Indian market. Now, with the launch of the 1-litre variant, the car will rival the likes of Renault Kwid and Maruti Suzuki Alto. The 1-litre variant of the car might carry a price tag of Rs 3.75 lakh to Rs 4 lakh.
