Datsun unveils the Go+ in Indonesia

Article by Christian A., on September 19, 2013

After the unveiling of the Datsun Go+, the Japanese marque is now preparing to start selling this model in Indonesia next year. The Go+ is basically an MPV version of the Go hatchback (which relaunched the brand earlier this year). It will be powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol engine as the hatchback. It will also feature the five-speed manual gearbox (also carried over from the hatch) that distributes power to the front axle. In addition, the MPV has the same wheelbase as its smaller sibling. One difference is that 210mm has been added to its overall length to provide room for two more passengers.

The design of the Go+’s interior is almost exactly the same as that of the Go hatchback. It also replaced the traditional AM/FM radio with the dedicated smartphone integration. Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn said that with Datsun’s return, they’re “changing mobility” and making car ownership more accessible. The pricing has yet to be revealed but it’s expected to cost higher than the hatchback’s price of more than 400,000 Indian rupees.

It’s still far from the price tag on a Tata Nano. Datsun has been relaunched as part of Nissan’s plans to cater for the budget end of the market, similar to what Renault is doing with its Dacia models. Nissan is optimistic that the Datsun brand will make up half of its total sales in Indonesia by 2016. So far, Nissan doesn’t plan on bringing the brand to Europe. [source: Datsun]
