Datsun GO+ spotted testing in Chennai

Datsun GO+ spotted testing in Chennai

The Datsun GO+ has been spied testing around the Nissan-Renault manufacturing facility in Chennai. Though the car was unveiled earlier this year at the Delhi Auto Expo, this is the first instance of the sub-four-metre MPV being spotted in India. The GO+ has been on sale in Indonesia for quite some time now and is expected to be launched here by the end of third quarter of this year.

Like the Datsun GO hatchback, the GO+ will be based on the previous generation Nissan Micra’s platform. Though the GO and the GO+ share the same wheelbase, the MPV will be a seven-seater. Nissan has added extra overhang behind the rear wheels of the GO+ to accommodate the third row of seat. As a cost cutting measure, interiors and several components will be identical to the GO.

 

Despite the extra size, Datsun has stuck with the 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine for the GO+, which produces 68bhp and 104Nm of torque. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the engine has been tuned to return maximum efficiency.

The GO+ will be locally manufactured at Nissan-Renault’s Oragadam plant in Chennai. The GO hatchback is currently sold through Nissan dealerships across the country, though the Japanese manufacturer does have plans to set up independent Datsun showrooms by the end of this year.

 

Despite the extra row of seats, Nissan has ensured that the overall length of the GO+ stays below four metres, qualifying it for government’s concessions. Thus we can expect the car to be priced competitively, probably lower than its rivals, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Mahindra Quanto. With seven seats and an economical engine, Datsun has the perfect recipe for the Indian customer and if the sales numbers of the GO are anything to go by, we are sure the GO+ will also be well received in the Indian market.
