Datsun redi-GO’s price leaked on company website
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Priced from INR 2,39,500.
Ahead of its official launch on June 7, Datsun’s website had listed the starting price of INR 2,39,500 (ex-showroom) for the Datsun redi-GO. It has now been taken down from the website, but luckily somebody had managed to screenshot the leak.
If the starting price is correct, then the Datsun redi-GO will undercut all its rivals in the segment and priced lower than their expected range of between INR 2.5-3.5 Lakhs. It is INR 13,000 cheaper than the entry-level grade of the Renault Kwid, which starts from INR 2.62 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
The Kwid shares its CMF-A platform and internals with the Datsun redi-GO, although their exterior and interior are significantly different. The top-end grade will come equipped with LED daytime running lights, front power windows, power steering, a music system with radio/CD/USB/AUX input and an optional driver airbag.
Powering the redi-GO is the Kwid’s 0.8-liter petrol engine producing 54 hp at 5,678 rpm and 72 Nm at 4,388 rpm, paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The redi-GO is claimed to be the fastest from 0-100 km/h (15.98 seconds) in its segment, and is also one of the most fuel efficient petrol hatchbacks in its segment, as it is capable of an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 25.17 km/l.
