Few weeks ago, Global NCAP released a notice that asked Nissan India to withdraw Datsun GO from the Indian market. The reason behind this notice was the NCAP crash test where the Datsun GO failed to score any safety rating.
Now the Global NCAP chief is planning to write to the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe in January, regarding the Datsun GO. Mosley will wait till the end of this year before penning down a letter to the PM. He believes that it is wrong that the company is selling cars into India which are much less safe than the cars it sells in other markets. Nissan India claims that the Datsun GO meets the Indian safety standards and was developed with a strong intention to deliver the best adapted solutions to the local conditions.
"We are going to wait a little bit longer and if we still don’t get a response then we are going to write to the prime minister of Japan because it’s a Japanese company. And, it is wrong that the company should be selling cars into India which are much less safe than the cars it sells into other markets," said Max Mosley, chief, Global New Car Assessment Programme (GNCAP).
Nissan India should reply to the letter sent by Global NCAP, as we think it is necessary to give answers to this esteemed safety organisation. The Japanese manufacturer will launch the Datsun Go+ SUV next month and there is a high chance the company could get another letter from Global NCAP.
