Nissan’s low cost car brand Datsun has recently launched its first car the Go hatchback, which has received an excellent response from buyers across the nation. The company is now gearing up to launch the Go based MPV in the Indian market. The vehicle has already put on test, as it has been spotted during its test rounds in Chennai.
Set to be launched by the festive season, the Datsun Go+ MPV is sub-4 metre compact MPV which will compete against the likes of Maruti Ertiga, Chevy’s Enjoy and soon to be launched Honda Mobilio. This sub-4 metre car is applicable to enjoy the excise duty benefit available to the car which comes under 4 metre length. The vehicle is expected to be the cheapest MPV in its league and is likely to be priced around Rs. 5-7 lakh.
The Datsun Go+ MPV is 3,995mm long, 1635mm wide and 1,485mm tall, and it has a wheelbase of 2450mm. At the front, the Go+ MPV looks identical to the Go hatchback. The side profile also looks similar to its sibling till the C Pillar; however, the company has added extra space to the rear. Under the hood, the Go+ MPV will get the 1.2-litre petrol engine that also powers the Go hatch. It is also likely to get the 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine.
