Datsun’s fourth product will be a crossover -EXCLUSIVE
Datsun has commenced worked on its fourth new product, which will be a crossover. This is if we consider the RediGO as the third one. At the moment, there are two possibilities, one is that the GO+ will get a body kit that makes it look like a crossover or that the brand is working to showcase a new crossover prototype at the 2016 Auto Expo.
Ideally this is the time for automakers to start preparing prototypes for the upcoming motor show in Greater Noida and then transferring them to the venue safely, covered from the rest of the world. At the last Auto Expo in 2014, Datsun had showcased the RediGO, which is the company’s new compact SUV coming early next year.
Datsun will be looking at utilising the CMF-A platform as Renault-Nissan have started manufacturing the Kwid in their factory, which is based on the same platform. The CMF platform will be utilised for more upcoming products in the future as well. This is likely to be a 5+2 seater itself, if they retain the GO+ platform. At the moment, everything is very tight lipped and we do have any more information than this.
Utilising the Datsun GO+ to make it into a crossover isn’t a difficult task. And in this manner the costing will be lesser, but will it be a good idea to use the same product again, might be a question that needs an answer. The GO is likely to not get into a crossover shape, as this will be somewhere similar to that of the RediGO. Our sources close to the plant recommend that the new product and it will be a crossover. The product planning is in very early stage and we shall update you with more information soon. Source:Datsun
