Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd has today launched the CVT-spec Datsun Go and Go+ in the domestic market and they are priced at highly desirable Rs. 5.94 lakh and Rs. 6.58 Lakh respectively. Offered in T and T (O) variants, the Go and Go+ CVTs carry the respective prices of Rs. 6.18 lakh and Rs. 6.80 lakh for the optional trims (ex-showroom).
The hatchback and the MPV are the first in their segments to receive a CVT that has been popular for a number of reasons globally. Nissan has confirmed that the deliveries of the Go and Go+ CVT variants have commenced from today onwards at Nissan and Datsun showrooms across the nation.
The interior of the Datsun Go and Go+ are fitted with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto connectivity and voice recognition technologies. The Japanese manufacturer says the Go and Go+ CVTs offer “smoother shifting of gears and better city, highway and hill driving”.
