After a long wait, we finally have the specifications of the Datsun Redi-GO. In a highly anticipated move, Nissan (Datsun, to be precise) has borrowed the 0.8-litre three-cylinder petrol engine from its partner Renault for its to-be-launched offering.
The power figures and mileage are the same as the Kwid’s. The engine will be able to deliver a maximum power of 53bhp at 5,678rpm with a peak torque of 72Nm at 4,388rpm. The mileage stands at 25.17 kmpl as well. Transmission duties will be carried out by a five-speed manual gearbox.
The overall dimensions are 3,429mm x 1,560mm x 1,541mm (L x B x H) and it wouldn’t be wrong to compare them with the Kwid’s (3,679mm x 1,579mm x 1,478mm) since the vehicles share various aspects. The shorter length and breadth might result in lesser legroom and space for the rear passengers in the Redi-GO. The ground clearance is kept at 185mm -- 5mm higher than the Renault offering -- which is good news for those who frequently travel on unmetalled roads.
Though there is no confirmation regarding an engine with higher capacity (1.0-litre) on offer in the Redi-GO, it is highly anticipated. This is because Nissan, Datsun’s parent company, recently developed a diesel engine with a similar capacity, and it is probable that Datsun will introduce it in its baby hatch.
Datsun has announced the launch price of the Redi-GO as Rs. 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Bookings for the car are open as well, at a refundable amount of Rs. 5,000.
