The Redi-Go, based on the CMF-A platform, launches next year.

The redi-Go concept previews Datsun's third product which will sit below the Go. The concept also sets the design direction for the future Dasun models.

While the Datsun Go adopts a conservative styling, the redi-Go concept embraces a sporty and youthful character. The concept merges the design of a 5-door hatchback with crossover traits.
