Datsun GO+ MPV unveiled in Indonesia

Datsun GO+ which is a sub 4 meter length vehicle will give volumes to Datsun when launched in India.


Datsun has unveiled its second model GO+ at the Indonesian Motor Show. Indonesia is the biggest market for MPV and hence Datsun chose to unveil the GO+ MPV there. To remind our readers, Datsun unveiled its hatchback GO in India as the hatchback market here is the biggest in the world.

Datsun GO+ MPV is built on the GO hatchback platform. It retains the same wheelbase of GO hatchback which is 2450mm and hence makes production easier and cheaper for Datsun. Though Maruti Ertiga is built on Ritz/Swift platform, it has longer wheelbase and hence production of Ertiga is costlier, the large rear doors and extended part to be produced separately. This cost factor will put Datsun GO+ MPV ahead of Ertiga when it will be launched in India in mid-2014.

The Datsun GO+ retains the same look of GO hatchback right from front to end. The rear portion of the car has been stretched to accommodate the 3rd row of seats which sits in the overhang portion of the car. Though built on a hatchback platform, the GO+ MPV looks well proportionate from all angles, unlike other stretched or notched MPVs which gets its looks ruined. The good thing is that it is less than 4 meters in length and hence Datsun can pass on the cost benefit to the customers.

The Datsun GO+ MPV will be powered by the same 1.2L petrol engine of GO hatchback and as of now Datsun has no plans to launch a diesel powered GO+ MPV. If it does we are sure this vehicle will certainly surge way ahead in the competiton.

The Datsun GO+ MPV is expected to be launched in mid-2014, 6 months after the launch of GO hatchback in India. As per speculations, the GO+ MPV might be priced between Rs. 4.5 to 5 lakh (Ex-showroom).
