Datsun – the affordable arm of Japanese auto major Nissan will launch limited edition sports avatar of its entry-level hatchback redi-GO in India on Thursday. The company had earlier on June 7 this year launched its new small car redi-GO, priced between Rs 2.38 lakh and Rs 3.34 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Last year, the automaker had launched a compact multi- purpose vehicle Go+ to add to the Go small car to expand its network in small towns to boost sales of its Datsun brand of vehicles. In 2014, when Nissan launched the Datsun Go in India, marking the global comeback of the brand after nearly three decades, it had said it was aiming to garner 10 per cent share in the Indian passenger vehicles market by 2016. However, last year, it had clarified that it would miss its target, but would advance the launch of a third vehicle from its Datsun brand in the country to propel growth. Both, Nissan and Datsun, now aim to garner 5 percent share in India by 2020.
