February 5, 2014: Datsun enters the MPV segment with the launch of Go+ and the crossover concept, Redi. Targeting the families in the country, the company is planning to make its vehicles large enough to accommodate large families. The vehicles come with smartphone integration. The Datsun Go+ sports a 1.2 litre engine with five speed manual transmission. The maximum output that can be produced is limited to 67 bhp, while the top torque it can achieve is 104 Nm. The bold and dynamic vehicle will be in competition with Honda’s Mobilio and others in the compact SUV segment in the country.
The Datsun Go Plus is the latest compact MPV unveiled by the Japanese auto giant Nissan. This compact MPV comes with an overall length of just about 3995mm that ensures excise duty benefits when it arrives on to the Indian shores, which is expected to be sometime at the start of the next year. Just few months back Nissan has created a buzz around the auto market by unveiling the Datsun Go hatch in the car market. Now the company has unveiled yet another model in the form of Datsun Go Plus for the entry level MPV segment. This newly unveiled MPV is surprisingly good looking that can makes you fall in love with it. The company has unveiled some of the details regarding this new model that explains everything about this MPV. The company is promising that the yet to be launched Datsun Go Plus MPV will come with a price tag less than 100 million Indonesian Rupiah. According to the present conversion rate going on in the market, the Datsun Go Plus MPV price tag for Indian markets will start at about the range of Rs. 5.0 lakh to Rs. 6.0 lakh, which is simply unbelievable. There is no official announcement about the price as yet. The company states that the vehicle is going to be available in the auto markets from the year 2014 onwards, which is just about few months away from now. What really special about this new MPV is its sub 4 meter length. Although it is a compact MPV, it comes with seating space for at least 7 people with a 2+3+2 seating arrangement. This clearly explains that the Nissan is looking to be aggressive in the emerging markets like India, Russia, Indonesia and South Africa. This Compact MPV is said to be powered by the 1.2-litre petrol power plant, which is performing its duty under the hood of the prevalent Nissan Micra hatchback series. We can also see the same engine in the yet to be launched Datsun Go hatchback model series, which is also expected to hit the Indian car market soon. This yet to be introduced MPV will be manufactured locally in India at Nissan – Renault manufacturing facility, which is based closer to the metropolis of Chennai. This upcoming compact MPV model is perfectly designed for Indian families and individuals, who look to purchase a low cost vehicle. Datsun Go Plus has a contemporary body design with sleek and expressive exteriors that enhances the overall appeal of the vehicle. The company has managed to keep its style pretty simple with no-nonsense sort of exteriors. The front facade of this upcoming MPV looks identical to the Datsun Go while its side profile too has its design elements. However, its rear profile comes with a unique design that doesn't looks cheap at all. There is no doubt that the exterior design of this MPV will steal the hearts and turns the heads on the go. On the other hand, this MPV's interior design has been borrowed from the Datsun Go hatch. The company has used the same dashboard of Datsun Go hatch and fitted inside this compact MPV. The legroom space in the front row is amazingly spacious as the gearshift knob console has been integrated to the dashboard. The central console comes equipped with some of the features including a proficient air conditioning system with AC vents and Mobile docking station. The space at the second row is also good but the third row seating may not be comfortable for adults as the space is very less. However, considering its low cost price tag, it might still be the best choice for all Indian families and individuals.
This yet to be launched Datsun Go Plus is expected to sport a decent 1.2-litre petrol mill, which is the same engine that is said to be also fitted under the hood of Datsun Go hatch. Thus, you can expect for the same power and performance with great fuel economy. The company claimed that the Datsun Go Plus can offer a superior mileage of about 20 Kmpl, which is more than any other MPV. This will eventually reduce the cost of running and saves a lot of money for the customers. On the other hand, it will send a clear message to the other automobile companies and spurs up the competition.
Although the size of the engine is less, this upcoming Datsun Go Plus has the ability to deliver great power and torque that indeed helps it to be good at pickup and acceleration. This compact MPV comes fitted with the Dual Overhead Cam Shaft based 1.2-litre, three cylinder, 12-valve based petrol power plant that makes a displacing capacity of about 1198cc. This is the same petrol mill that is currently powering the Nissan Micra hatchback model series and it will also be equipped to the upcoming Datsun Go hatch as well. This DOHC based petrol mill will churn out a maximum power of about 75bhp at 6000rpm and generates 104nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine power will be distributed to the front wheels of this compact MPV through an advanced 5-speed manual transmission gearbox, which is the reason for its greater fuel efficiency.
We can expect that the Datsun Go Plus to be good in terms of acceleration and pickup aspects as well. As of now the company hasn't released the specifications of this upcoming new compact MPV but considering its 1.2-litre engine, we can expect that the Datsun Go Plus may obtain a top speed in a range of about 145 to 155 Kmph. On the other hand, it is expected to reach a 100 Kmph speed mark in about 15 to 16 seconds, which will be impressive.
