The Datsun Go+ will be officially launched in July in Indonesia.

A report on Indonesian website Iotomotif states that the currency fluctuation has affected imported cars and locally produced cars. The impact is so vast that even cars with upto 80 percent of local content have raised their prices.

The website also reports that the company has confirmed the price will stay below the 100 million Rupiah (Rs 5.4 lakh) mark.

The Go+ was first debuted in Indonesia at the Indonesian International Motor Show last September. Following that debut, the company confirmed that even India would get the MPV and was duly unveiled at last month’s Auto Expo in Greater Noida.
