After the successful launch of the Go-Cross in 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, Datsun, Nissans low-cost brand is gearing up for the launch in India during the upcoming 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. While addressing the media at the Tokya Motor Show Vincent Cobee, Datsun’s global head, spoke about the success the brand has experienced.
“This is a significant day for Datsun. We have successfully completed the first phase of our return, and feel proud that through our vehicles more than 100,000 customers have been able to make their dream of personal mobility a reality. In fact, the latest figure of cars sold since Datsun GO was launched in India in March-2014 now stands at 114 000 units (globally),”
The Go-Cross will be launched in the sub-4 meter category to be classified as a “Crossover” and is expected to be available in 5-seater and 7-seater, although initially only the 5-seater version will be launched. The Go-Cross will be based on the same platform on which the GO+ is built, and is likely to share most its styling features as well with raised height and extra body cladding to give a off-road look. Like other Datsun product the G-Cross will be manufactured in India and Indonesia it expected to be priced much lower than the existing crossovers in the market.
Apart from the GO-Cross, Datsun is also working on a new product based on the Nissan-Renault Alliance’s CMF-A platform, which currently is used in the Renault Kwid. The similar platform will be used in the redi-Go hatchback that made its debut at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo and a more developed version might debut at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo.
