Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. brand Datsun India comes one step closer to enabling progressive mobility with the launch of the BSVI compliant Datsun GO and GO+. In line with its vision to offer ‘mobility for all’, the company according to Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India is confident of offering customers a strong value proposition with the future-ready cars. Averred Srivastava, “With the new Datsun GO and GO+, we have introduced high-quality products that not only have a strong value proposition but are also future-ready.” “Built with Japanese technology, both cars are BSVI compliant and offer the most affordable Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) options in India,” he stated.

Under the hood
The three-cylinder 1.2-litre Dual Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) HR12 DE petrol engine on the Datsun GO and GO+, is rated for a peak power of 75 hp at 5000 rpm and a torque of 104 Nm at 4000 rpm. The naturally aspirated 12V DOHC EFI engine is mated to a manual five-speed transmission. Nissan is known to have developed a three-cylinder engine built with fewer parts than a four-cylinder engine. Reducing the number of parts is claimed to have helped reduce friction and as a result achieving lower fuel consumption levels. The improved combustion efficiency is said to have helped in achieving better mileage (19.02 kmpl validated by ARAI). For instance, the knocking is known to have been curbed by the lengthy retention of tumble flow in the centre of the combustion chamber. This is said to have been achieved by re-adjusting the combustion chamber shape and with the use of a deep piston. The vibration associated with a three-cylinder engine was curbed by an outer balancer.
Suspension on the Datsun GO and GO+ is made up of McPherson Strut with a lower transverse link at the front, twist-beam suspension with coil spring at the rear. The ride quality is claimed to have been enhanced with twin-tube telescopic shock absorbers. Disc and drum brakes are deployed at the front and rear respectively. Datsun CVT comes with shift locker that prevents accidental gear shifting without using the brake for greater safety. The Datsun GO and GO+ ride on the 14X5.5J steel wheel and 165/70 R14 tyres.

Value Addition
The front fascia with a dynamic front hexagon silver grille and modern hawk-eye headlamps attract. Measuring 3788 mm in length, 1636 mm in width and 1507 mm in height with roof rail, the cars have a wheelbase of 2450 mm and a ground clearance of 180 mm. A boot space of 265-litres is provided on the hatchbacks. Among value additions on the GO and GO+ are standard features like an immobiliser, central locking, rear parking assist sensors, airbag (driver + co-driver), seatbelt reminder (driver + co-driver), ABS, EBS, brake assist and side crash and pedestrian protection regulation compliance. Among other key inclusions are keyless entry, electric power steering, power windows, electrically adjustable mirrors, gear shift indicator, and the engine running time display to name a few. Datsun has also made the cars available in a sports model. Both the cars come with a standard warranty of two years, extendable up to five years with a free roadside assistance subscription for two years.

Datsun advantage
Offering flexibility to its customers, the cars are made available with special financial schemes including the ‘Buy Now and Pay in 2021’ scheme which allows customers to choose the start of EMIs (seven month EMI holiday). Other attractions include a 100 per cent finance option, low EMI benefit and EMI Assurance benefit offered exclusively through Datsun Finance. ACI
