Today, Datsun silently listed the BS6 versions of Go and Go+ on its official website in India. The listing covers everything about the vehicles like the features, variants and the specifications. Japanese Automaker hasn’t revealed the prices for their cars on the official website so far. Go and Go + will be sold in five variants - D, A, A (O), T and T (O) in the Indian market.
The official launch is expected to take place once the lockdown ends. Datsun redi-Go launch is expected in the coming days with the teaser images already revealed online.
