BS-VI Compliant Datsun GO, GO+ Debut in India: Same Hatchback with a New Engine!

During this uncertain time, Datsun becomes the only daring automaker to launch an all-new BS6 (BS-VI) complaint Datsun GO and Datsun GO+ in India. Since Nissan, Datsun’s parent company also announced a teaser of their next-gen compact-SUV aka Nissan Magnite.

In retrospect, there are on-going reports that Nissan is planning to shut down Datsun’s operations in India. With those reports, the launch of the new BS6 vehicles seems like a necessity rather than a business strategy. In any case, 2020 Datsun GO and Datsun GO+ are here!

The all-new Datsun cars get a new BS6 compliant engine with minor changes. Talking about the pricing, Datsun GO BS6 price in India starts at INR. 3.99 Lakhs to INR. 6.25 Lakhs.

Likewise, the Datsun GO+ BS6 price in India starts at INR. 4.20 Lakhs to INR. 6.70 Lakhs. Taking that into context, Datsun GO BS6 price in Nepal might start, with slight increment over its predecessors, at Rs. 26 Lakhs – 28 Lakhs.

With the new Datsun GO and GO+, Datsun India is also offering easy financial schemes, with the flexibility to choose your start of EMIs with the launch of “Buy Now and PAY IN 2021*. Some of the other schemes include 100% finance option, Low EMI Benefit, and EMI Assurance benefit.

Commenting on the launch, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said, “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 BS6 compliant and offer the most affordable CVT options in India.”

Datsun GO BS6 Overview

Datsun GO is powered by a 1.2-L three-cylinder BS6-complaint Petrol Engine which can generate a max power of 68PS at 5000rpm and a max torque of 104Nm at 4000rpm.

Compared to its predecessor, the performance numbers are more or less similar. However, there is a slight increase in the power output at 77PS at 6000rpm for the CVT option.

Moreover, you can choose it in two different engine configurations: Manual or CVT. That’s right! You get to choose either a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional CVT.

Compared with the Datsun GO+, it shares almost everything with one another. However, this one comes in as a 5-seater hatchback. Likewise, it is almost cosmetically similar to 2019 Datsun GO except for the BS6 engine.
