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.
