Datsun India has announced the pre-launch bookings for the 1-litre redi-GO hatchback starting from 1st July 2017. The Datsun redi-GO was introduced in the country last year with a 0.8-litre petrol engine, and the new 1-litre variant promises to add more power and drive-ability to the company’s little car. Bookings for the redi-GO 1-litre start with a fully refundable down payment of Rs.10, 000, while distributions will commence from 26th July, 2017 the auto giant said in a declaration. Datsun India – Vice President, Jerome Saigot said, “With the positive customer responses to the redi-GO and redi-GO Sport, we are delighted to offer the redi-GO version with a more powerful 1.0L engine. The redi-GO 1.0L with the iSAT engine is an ideal package for clienteles looking for power, attractive design and performance.
Today’s youth want a car that shows their personality with style, and redi-GO 1.0L is ready to meet their needs with more power and convenience.” Sharing its underpinnings with the Renault Kwid, the Datsun redi-GO also uses the same 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine as the compact French cross-over. Datsun choose to call the motor Smart Spark Automated Technology (iSAT) that offers higher fuel efficiency, while paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. On the Kwid, the motor returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 23 kmpl. So assume to related numbers on the Datsun redi-GO as well. Also, imagine to see additional badging and body decal on the 1.0-litre version of the hatchback. The redi-GO has been the reversal product for Datsun India with the model averaging over 1600 units every month since its launch. The tall boy stance with butch and a massive ground clearance of 185 mm has worked well for the model. The redi-GO also features a more conservative audio system instead of the mobile docking unit from the GO+ and GO, while the car delivers ample of headroom as well despite its restrained proportions. While the Datsun redi-GO will go on sale later this month, the model is most likely to be followed up with an AMT version just before the festive season.
