As expected, the redi-GO depicted in the rendering is a filtered down version of the Datsun redi-GO concept unveiled at the Auto Expo 2014. It will be the second vehicle to ride on the CMF-A platform that spawned the Renault Kwid, and appears to be banking on its crossver-esque looks to garner appeal.
Datsun redi-Go, expected to be priced lower than Renault Kwid, is based on the same platform that underpins the Kwid hatchback. Datsun currently has two other models — GO hatchback and GO+ MPV — in the domestic market, and hopes to expand its reach with redi-Go. Earlier reports had said that the company has started the trial production of redi-Go at the Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Oragadam, Chennai.
The Redi-Go will be Datsun’s third model in India. The Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Chennai, where the Redi-Go will be produced, has already started a third production shift to accommodate the Redi-Go, apart from scaling up to meet the strong demand for the Kwid.
According to source, the production spec car carries forward maximum elements from it’s concept model showcased during 2014 Indian Auto Expo. Even though it does not have SUV-ish stance, taller shoulder line and masculine side profile adds necessary flare to the design. Shorter length coupled with taller stance makes this car unique though.
