Thanks to the overwhelming response for the newly launched redi-GO, Datsun India has become the fastest growing car brand in India in June 2016 with an impressive 188 percent year-on-year growth. The company sold a total of 4,297 cars in the month of June, and the redi-GO’s contribution in that was almost 70%.
“This unprecedented growth of the Datsun brand is due to the phenomenal response Datsun redi-GO is getting from people across the country,” said Arun Malhotra, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. He further said that the company has sold close to 3,000 units of the redi-GO within just 23 days of its launch.
Called India’s first urban-cross, the Datsun redi-GO has been receiving such a great response due to its unique crossover-ish styling, best-in-class performance & roominess. The Datsun redi-GO is claimed to offer low cost of ownership, and comes with a 2 year/unlimited kilometres standard warranty. One can also go for an optional warranty for 2 or 3 years/unlimited kilometres with free roadside assistance.
“The Datsun redi-GO has been built with all the expertise learned in Datsun and Nissan’s eighty year history,” added Arun Malhotra. “Datsun sold more than 20 million cars in the twentieth century, bringing the joy of car ownership for the first time to people first in Japan and then the world. Now we aim to do the same in India.”
Based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-A platform, the Datsun redi-GO features a 799cc, three-cylinder engine that’s good for 53bhp and 72Nm. The vehicle’s prices fall between Rs 2.39 lakh – Rs 3.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Besides the redi-GO, the company also sells the GO hatchback and the GO+ MPV in the country.
