According to reports, the company is also working on fitting ABS on its cars.

The Go came under the spotlight in November last year, when it failed the crash test set by the Global NCAP. Further, Global NCAP released a statement highlighting the weak structure of the car, and termed it “pointless” to fit an airbag.

    Instead of dying horribly from trauma due to multiple perforations of the torso and head, the Go/Go+ driver can now opt to pay additional money to be smothered to death! Hahahahaha! Well, no one’s laughing. ????
