Today, Nissan has officially commenced the production and rolled out first ever Datsun Go from its plant at Oragadam, Chennai.

Pointers From Event:

> Datsun Go sales begin from March 2014 in Indian market.

> It will be showcased in different colors at upcoming Auto Expo.

> The car is manufactured on Line 2 of Renault-Nissan Plant, Orgadam.

> Datsun Go is claimed to be positioned at a uniquely accessible price point for Indian customers.

> Fact: Over one hundred local manufacturers from India are supplying the components to build the Go.

> Datsun benefits from Renault-Nissan’s alliance using latest facilities and local supplier base by building it in their plant.

> Renault-Nissan’s Orgadam plant has becomes the first manufacturing facility in the world to produce latest Datsun models.

> The company is contemplating to introduce the car in various other markets including Russia and Indonesia later in 2014.

> Present at the ceremony were several local dignitaries, including Thiru.P.Thangamani Minister of industries, Tamil Nadu) and Masanori Nakano (Consul General of Japan).

Personal Observations:

> "Go" will be the competitor to the Alto / Alto 800

> It doesn't come equipped with body color mirrors.

> It has a single windshield wiper like Toyota Etios Liva

> Go in red color looks really cool when compare to Blue.

> The car share similar specifications as of Micra / Pulse.

> However it will be priced lower with minimum features.

> Pricing is yet to be announced but speculated figure is Rs.3 – 5 Lakh.

Hi AppU,
Thanks for the effort,but few snaps from the opening ceremony and plant visit are clutter,try to delete them.That makes the thread ungainly to look at.

Brilliant coverage Appu. Those are some really nice snap shots you've put up of the Nissan-Datsun factory. Datsun Go seems to be a really nice package for the expected price it would be launched at.

Very good Coverage Appu [clap]. So you became a journalist [:D].

Go is quite a good HB. Almost same dimensions as Micra/Pulse and shares same production line also.

Did you get any interior pics of the car ?

The wheel caps are copy of Swift/Dzire.

If launched under 3 lacs (with AC/PS), Alto 800 will have a good competitor. But most important thing is service, where Nissan is lagging big time.

What will be the engine specifications ?
