PV Sindhu, the 21-year old badminton player, became India’s first women to win an Olympic silver medal. Showcasing her extraordinary talent, Sindhu not only gave a tough fight to the world No 1 Carolina Marin, but pulled the entire country out for cheering her as well. Similarly, the Indian wrestler Sakshi Malik and gymnastics Dipa Karmakar made the country proud by winning bronze medal and earning fourth-position, respectively, at the Olympics Games Rio 2016.
Commemorating India’s achievements at the 2016 Olympics Games, Datsun has announced to honour all three athletes – P. V. Sindhu, Sakshi Mallik and Dipa Karmakar – with the all-new Datsun redi GO hatchback.
The Datsun redi GO is available in four trims priced between Rs 2.38 lakh – Rs 3.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). At this price, the hatchback stands against the Hyundai Eon, Maruti Alto 800 and Renault Kwid. Under the hood, the redi GO houses a 800cc, 3-cylinder DOHC petrol engine that’s good for 53.2bhp and 72Nm. Mated with a 5-speed manual transmission, it is claimed to return an ARAI-certified mileage of 25.17kmpl.
Touted as India’s first ‘Urban Cross’, the redi GO hatchback is based on the Kwid’s CMF-A platform. Despite being a small car, the redi GO offers a class-leading ground clearance and kneeroom for passengers. It also offers best-in-class features along with decent performance. The hatchback also gets segment-first LED daytime running lights, and comes with an optional 2 or 3 years/unlimited kilometers warranty.
Commenting on this achievement, Arun Malhotra, Managing Director Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. said, “It is a proud moment for all of us and we congratulate the winners. Dipa, Sakshi and P. V. Sindhu are the real go-getters and are an inspiration for the youth of the nation”. “Our #ISayYes campaign is designed to connect with the energy of the young dreamers, further strengthen our bond with them and encourage them to never give up. We at Datsun celebrate the achievement of the daughters of our country,” he added further.
