Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Update (23/06/2017): 

According to a report from Motoroids, the redi-GO 1.0L version will launch in India on July 19, 2017. Nissan is yet to confirm the launch date yet, but could starting sharing teasers online in the next few weeks.

Will carry over the 1.0L SCe motor from the Renault Kwid.

According to CarWale, the Renault Kwid’s Japanese cousin – the Datsun redi-GO – will receive the 1.0L SCe motor option next month. Nissan is yet to confirm if such a variant is launching next month, but has hinted in the past that more variants of the redi-GO are in the works.

Renault Kwid 1.0 MT engine bay First Drive Review
In the Kwid, the 1.0L SCe motor produces 68 PS at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm.

The 1.0L naturally aspirated SCe petrol motor in the Kwid produces 68 PS at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm. In the Kwid, it can be paired with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed Easy-R AMT. For the redi-GO, however, it could initially come with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Expect the fuel mileage to be similar to the Kwid’s, which can average 23.01 km/L. Once Datsun launches the AMT variant of redi-GO, it will be the second least expensive automatic car in India, after the Tata Nano Gen X Easy Shift.

Like what Renault did with the Kwid 1L initially, Datsun could exclusively offer the 1.0L engine option in the top-end S and Sport grades. In both variants, a driver’s airbag is standard, while the Sport version additionally gets keyless entry, reverse parking sensors and Bluetooth audio system.
