Japanese car manufacturer Nissan displayed its compact car on April 15 ‘redi-GO’ under the Datsun brand that will hit markets in June. However, the company did not declare the price of this car yet. But according to the company ‘redi-GO’ will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Alto and Hyundai’s Eon, which are priced between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 4.42 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Accoding to Arun Malhotra, MD of the Nissan Motor India, the bookings for the model would start in May and deliveries would begin in June. ‘redi-GO’ is the company’s third model from under the Datsun brand in India and has come up on a brand new platform developed in India.
Last year, the automaker had launched a compact multi- purpose vehicle Go+ to add to the Go small car to expand its network in small towns to boost sales of its Datsun brand of vehicles.
However, last year, it had clarified that it would miss its target, but would advance the launch of a third vehicle from its Datsun brand in the country to propel growth.
Both (Nissan and Datsun) now aim to acquire 5 per cent market share in India by 2020.
