Deliveries of Datsun’s entry-level hatchback with automatic gearbox to begin from January 23.
Datsun has officially started accepting bookings for the redi-GO 1.0L AMT variant. The 1.0L AMT variant will be the only one in the redi-GO range to be offered with a 5-speed AMT transmission.
The upcoming Datsun redi-GO 1.0L AMT can be pre-booked from any of the 254 Nissan/Datsun showrooms in the country for an amount of Rs 10,000. The first units of the car will be delivered to customers beginning January 23.
The Datsun redi-GO is the most affordable car the company offers in India. The other cars in its lineup include the GO hatchback and the GO+ compact-MPV. The redi-GO 1.0L AMT shares the same engine as the 1.0L MT variant; it develops 68PS of maximum power and 91Nm of peak torque. The AMT is a 5-speed unit, the same as the one offered on the Renault Kwid 1.0 AMT. It will be interesting to see if Datsun also fits a rotary controller for the AMT in the redi-GO like Renault did with the Kwid. The Datsun redi-GO 1.0L AMT is expected to match the MT’s 22.7kmpl claimed fuel efficiency figure.
In terms of design and features, the redi-GO 1.0L AMT is not expected to get additional features over other variants. The LED DRLs, full wheel covers, front power windows, two-speaker sound system and the driver airbag are expected to be carried over unchanged.
