Arun Malhotra, managing director of Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Datsun is a challenger brand and we have been working hard for three years now to bring products that people want and desire. In that spirit, building on the successful launch of redi-GO last year, Datsun now offers a more powerful driving experience with the redi-GO 1.0L. It brings more power, style and convenience for our customers, and we are delighted to launch it today.”

Jerome Saigot, vice president, Datsun India, added, “Datsun is focused on offering accessible and high-value-for-money cars for aspirational “young India.” The Datsun redi-GO 1.0L is the latest example of our brand’s core strengths, and we will continue to enhance the Datsun model line-up in line with our customers’ expectations.”

The Datsun RediGo 1.0L is powered by the Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (iSAT) 1.0L three-cylinder engine which has been paired to a five-speed manual transmission. The new engine is not only powerful but also fuel efficient to appeal to both the hearts and minds of Indian car buying public. Additionally, it comes in two trim levels, T(O) and S, with new features such as central locking and remote keyless entry, black interiors and silver finish on the AC vents and horn pad. The car is available in five body colours- Silver, Grey, Ruby, Lime and White.

Launched in India in June 2016, the Datsun RediGo combines the roominess, agility and efficiency of an urban hatchback with best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm and high seating position. Though not successful as the hatchback from its technology partner Renault Kwid, Datsun RediGo is a promising little hatchback with commendable interior space for better legroom, kneeroom and shoulder room.

Priced from INR 3,57,333 deliveries to new owners will commence today at all Nissan dealerships across the country. You can also read our comprehensive road test of the Datsun RediGo 1.0L here.
