Datsun has introduced the BS6 compliant Go hatchback and Go Plus MPV in the Indian market. Both cars are available all across India. The Datsun Go is priced at Rs 3.99 lakhs while the Go+ gets a starting price of Rs 4.19 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Datsun has not changed the vehicles visually and they remain identical to the BS4 compliant versions. Datsun will start delivering the vehicles once the lockdown comes to an end.
With the new BS6 compliant vehicles, Datsun has also introduced easy finance schemes. It will allow the customers to choose flexible EMIs and also will allow the buyers to choose the time when they want their EMIs to start. Under the “Buy Now and PAY in 2021”, customers can choose to pay the EMIs in 2021. Also, there are offers which can be used to finance 100% of the value of the car.
