Datsun India announced today that the newly launched redi-Go and the Go+ will now be available across all the Canteen Stores Department (CSD) in the country. The company will also have special offers for armed forces and ex-servicemen and their families in India. Additionally, the CSD customers can also avail a discount of Rs 5,000, priority delivery, VAT exemption, exclusive offers as well access to other ongoing offers.
Prior to the Go+ and the redi-G0, Datsun has already been selling the Go hatchback to armed forces through CSD. The different variants that will be available in CSD are the Go T, Go+ T, redi-Go T, T(O) and S.
Commenting on the initiative, Arun Malhotra, managing director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. said, It's always been our endeavor to enhance the overall brand experience for our customers. Extending the Datsun redi-GO and Datsun GO+ under CSD along with our other existing Nissan and Datsun models, is another step to provide one more reason for our customers to take home their favorite vehicle topped with exclusive offers,"
Datsun launched the Go+ MPV in 2015 at Rs 3.79 lakh, ex-Delhi. Targeted towards customers looking for a larger vehicle than a conventional hatchback, the Go+ is positioned as an entry-level MPV. In terms of sales, the Go+ has not exactly set the cash registers ringingfor Datsun as the numbers have been declining. The Datsun redi-Go, on the other hand, was launched in June this year at Rs 2.49 lakh. The entry-level hatch has been banking on a crossover-inspired styling and is based on the CMF-A platform. It competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 and the Renault Kwid. Datsun will also showcase the production-ready Go Cross in a few months. This will be the most premium Datsun product in the country when it goes on sale in India sometime next year.
