Datsun’s low cost car redi-Go to be launched in May 2015

        According to reports by Business Week, Datsun will launch its low cost redi-Go in India by second quarter of next year. Datsun has showed the redi-Go concept at the Auto Expo 2014 held in New Delhi.

        The redi-Go concept is based on an all new low cost platform which is likely to be shared by Renault’s soon to be launched small car in India codenamed XBA. The redi-Go project codenamed Datsun I2 is taking its shape at Renault Nissan Techonology Business Center India.

        Datsun redi-Go is also likely to share its powertrain with the Renualt’s small car which will be powered by all new 3 cylinder 800cc petrol engine. The car is reported to be light weight with kerb weight of 760 Kg.

        Datsun will position redi-Go below the Go hatchback. Since the small car market is dominated by Maruti, it will be hard for Datsun to compete having seen very little success with Go hatch.
