Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

To have around 95 percent local content.

Motor Octane reports that the Datsun Redi-Go will be priced less than the Renault Kwid, and that the model will be unveiled in May 2016. This will make the Redi-Go the most affordable car in the product line of the Renault-Nissan Alliance (RNA).

The Datsun Redi-Go is likely to use the same powertrain as the Renault Kwid.

The Redi-Go and the Kwid will have a lot of common parts. Both are based on the same platform, the Common Module Family – Affordable (CMF-A) and they are also expected to share the same powertrain, the 800 cc B4A engine with a five-speed manual transmission. The motor produces 54 PS and 74 Nm on the Kwid.

The Kwid has a localisation level of 98 percent and hence the Redi-Go is expected to have the same level of local content. With Datsun being the entry-level brand in RNA, the Datsun Redi-Go could miss out on some features that are offered on the Kwid, like the touchscreen-equipped infotainment system, which would be one of the ways the model is priced lower.
