Datsun India got 1 lakh customers
Datsun may not be the popular auto manufacturer in India, but the brand surely has some avid fans. Recently Datsun has fetched a total of 1 lakh customers.
The Nissan owned Japanese auto manufacturer presently sells two models in Indian market, which are the compact hatchback Datsun Go and the MUV Datsun Go+. Although Datsun is one of the very popular brands in various parts around the globe, but in Indian market they couldn’t make a strong foothold due to the tough competition and comparatively dull design of their cars. Although, Datsun Go comes quite impressive in the segment and it comes with some best in the segment features too. Datsun revealed their Redi Go concept a few months ago, and in 2016 there is a chance for them to reveal the Redi Go production model. Although Datsun is yet to reveal the exact details about this car.
Incidentally Datsun Go compact hatchback is powered by a 1.2 litre 12 V 3 cylinder DOHC engine mated to a 5 speed manual transmission, which delivers 68 PS peak power at 5000 rpm and 104 Nm at 4000 rpm. On the other hand, the Datsun Go+ comes with a 1.2 litre 3 cylinder engine, mated to a 5 speed manual gear box. The powertrain of Datsun Go+ delivers 68 PS peak power and 77 Nm maximum torque.
