Based on the Go+ MPV’s platform.
The Datsun GO-Cross that was unveiled at Nissan’s global headquarters in Japan during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show is headed for Auto Expo 2016, reports Financial Express. It is a crossover bodystyle built on the same platform of the Datsun GO+ MPV.
The publication reports that the Datsun GO-Cross will eventually be made available in 5- and 7-seat versions, but the one to be showcased at the Auto Expo will be a 5-seater and it will be launched ahead of the 7-seat model. It is also reported that the GO-Cross will be priced higher than the Datsun GO hatchback and the GO+ MPV.
Though the GO-Cross is set for unveil at the Auto Expo, it is not yet green-lit for production, according to the company. Vincent Cobee, Global Head of Datsun, told IndianAutosBlog recently that the next Datsun launch in India will be a model based on the CMF-A platform (that underpins the Renault Kwid) and that it will happen in early-2016.
He was referring to the Datsun Redi-GO that was recently spied testing in Chennai. It is likely that the production-spec Redi-GO will be presented at the Auto Expo in Greater Noida in February.
