Datsun redi-Go Concept
A look into Datsun's possible future is revealed by a dramatic new concept being given its world premiere at the 12th Delhi Auto Expo 2014 - the Datsun redi-GO Concept.
The name reflects the car's character. It is ready to support potential customers to explore a new day, to challenge new things and to build a way ahead. It also expresses the excitement of "ready to go" before people start their day's journey.
Shiro Nakamura, SVP and Chief Creative Officer, said: "Although Datsun redi-GO Concept is just that - a concept - it shows clearly the way we are thinking. It's an ambitious styling exploration but, being a Datsun, it is a logical design, too."
Datsun redi-GO Concept builds on Datsun's design language, being modern and distinctive, clear and robust, vigorous and positive. Combining five-door hatchback practicality with a rugged SUV stance, the Datsun redi-GO Concept previews a potential small crossover for the Indian market.
"When we were creating redi-GO Concept we had a few keywords in mind. We wanted a modern and characteristic design that, at the same time, appeared long lasting and substantial. We feel we have managed to combine these apparent contradictions in the concept," said Koji Nagano, Executive Design Director, who leads the entire Datsun design project.
With its short overhangs and crossover-style raised body, the compact concept has dynamic rising twin character lines running from front to rear which create the solid and strong boned side profile to the car, emphasizing its agility and robustness.
