Datsun Unveils Seven-Seat GO+

Only 3,995 mm (157.3 inches) long, the GO+ comes with folding rear seats and claims to provide a “move-able cozy family lounge able to accommodate all family members in one car for the journey”. The vehicle is motivated by the company’s familiar 1.2-liter petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, but Datsun has yet to reveal any power figures, adding that the unit has been “tuned for fuel efficiency and good acceleration”.

Both the GO and the GO+ are estimated to be priced below 100 million Indonesian rupiah, which means about $8,700 or €6,500 at current exchange rates. Following the Indonesian launch, both vehicles will be introduced in India, Russia and South Africa next year.

"With the return of the Datsun brand, we are changing mobility. And we're ensuring greater access to the pride, independence and opportunities that car ownership provides. It's exciting to know that, for many Indonesians, the first new car they buy will be a Datsun," said Carlos Ghosn, Nissan President and CEO.
