Datsun redi-GO Concept (19)

Η Datsun στην έκθεση του Δελχί παρουσίασε το redi-GO Concept. Η εταιρία το χαρακτηρίζει ως ένα κομψό και διακριτικό όχημα το οποίο αποτελεί ένα “βήμα μπροστά σε ότι αφορά τη γοητεία της κατηγορίας“ και ανήκει στη mini κατηγορία, δείχνοντας μας ένα πιθανό μοντέλο παραγωγής το οποίο θα απευθύνεται σε ένα αισιόδοξο και νεανικό κοινό της Ινδίας και άλλων αναδυόμενων αγορών.

To redi-GO Concept διαθέτει τη σχεδιαστική γλώσσα της Datsun, συνδυάζοντας την πρακτικότητα ενός πεντάθυρου hatchback και την άνεση ενός SUV. Φορά ζάντες 15″, με τους προφυλακτήρες του να είναι ενσωματωμένοι πάνω στο σώμα του πρωτότυπου. Είναι βαμμένο σε έντονο πράσινο χρώμα, με LED φωτιστικά σώματα, διαθέτοντας 2.350 mm μεταξόνιο, προσφέροντας έτσι αρκετό χώρο για τους πέντε επιβάτες του.

Περαιτέρω λεπτομέρειες δεν έγιναν γνωστές αλλά πληροφορίες αναφέρουν ότι έχει εσωτερική ονομασία Ι2 και βασίζεται πάνω στην Common Module Architecture (CMA) πλατφόρμα, που έχει εξελιχθεί από κοινού Renault και Nissan.

Επίσης, ακούγεται ότι η Γαλλική εταιρία θα αποκτήσει και δικιά της έκδοση του μοντέλου που θα μοιράζεται την ίδια πλατφόρμα και μηχανικά σύνολα αλλά διαφορετικό σχεδιασμό, ώστε να είναι εμφανή η διαφορά με το ιαπωνικό αυτοκίνητο.

Τέλος, στην ίδια έκθεση η εταιρία παρουσιάζει τόσο το Go, όσο και το G0+, μαζί με δύο εξοπλισμένες εκδόσεις του Go.

New Delhi, India – Datsun revealed the Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT at the 12th Delhi Auto Expo 2014, hinting at the direction of the brand’s possible future.

The name reflects the car’s character and expresses the excitement of “ready to go” before people start their day’s journey, giving customers the ability to explore a new day, to challenge new things and to build a way ahead.

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”.

Builds on Datsun’s design language and hints at an exciting future direction

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.

“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.

Fully integrated front and rear bumpers

Fully integrated bumpers front and rear underscore Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT’s robust design which is accentuated by large wheel arches filled by stylish dark chrome 15-inch alloy wheels. The body is finished in a flamboyant lime green, an active and bold colour reflecting the freshness.

The lime green contrasts with matte aluminium-look grey finish for the sills, wheels arches, and bumper inserts reinforcing its crossover concept aspects. With a wheelbase of 2,350 mm and high ground clearance Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT offers ample interior space.

Distinctive tessellated formation on the roof of the Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT

Although the concept remains a styling study at this stage, were it to be put into production it would be priced to target established compact hatchbacks delivering a compelling mix of modernity, quality and innovation.

“If we were to make a car like Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT it would be a segment creator in India, an aspirational car that at the same time is attainable, a car that would be within reach of the first time buyer. This concept shows how serious we are about reinvigorating the market by catering for the needs of a growing class of Indians who have the chance to own a family car that will enable them to enjoy a new sense of independence,” said Vincent Cobee, Global Head of Datsun.

The Datsun redi-GO concept will be on display at the Datsun stand at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014 from February 7th till the 11th.

DELHI, India, 05 February 2014 – 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”.

“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.

The modern headlights incorporate distinctive, narrow daytime running lights while the rear LED taillights feature an idiosyncratic twist of light to give Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT a unique visual signature when on the move. LED fog lights strips are fully integrated into the front bumper.

The dynamic movement, strong shoulder line, the shapes of the side windows and the grille with gently curving corners framing a large central area echo the style to be introduced at all Datsun models, namely ‘D-cut grille’.

Fully integrated bumpers front and rear underscore Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT’s robust design which is accentuated by large wheel arches filled by stylish dark chrome 15-inch alloy wheels. The body is finished in a flamboyant lime green, an active and bold colour reflecting the freshness. The lime green contrasts with matte aluminium-look grey finish for the sills, wheels arches, and bumper inserts reinforcing its crossover concept aspects.

The roof is finished in matt black, patterned with a distinctive tessellated formation, showcasing a future personalization opportunity, and giving the impression that the windscreen extends over the cabin and finishes in an extended spoiler.

With a wheelbase of 2,350 mm and high ground clearance Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT offers ample interior space. Aimed at young risers the Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT is seen as the perfect partner for people with an active lifestyle: stylish, smart and comfortable.

There are practical benefits of the crossover styling, too. The raised body and large wheel arches offer greater ground clearance allowing the car to cope better with challenging road surfaces, while the commanding driving position gives drivers an enhanced – and therefore safer – view over the traffic ahead.

Although the concept remains a styling study at this stage, were it to be put into production it would be priced to target established compact hatchbacks delivering a compelling mix of modernity, quality and innovation.

Despite its long and glorious history, Datsun is a young brand ready to make a positive impact in the market, offering buyers a refreshing alternative to existing products and brands” said Vincent Cobee, Global Head of Datsun.

The Datsun redi-GO CONCEPT reflects that excitement.”

Datsun History Datsun originated in Japan as DAT-GO (the DAT-car) almost a century ago in 1914. The word DAT means ‘lightning-fast’ in Japanese but is also a reference to the first letters of family names of the three financiers who supported the business at the time: Den, Aoyama and Takeuchi. Using the same logic, it was promoted as Durable, Attractive and Trustworthy, or DAT for short.

In 1933, Nissan’s founding father Yoshisuke Aikawa took over the business with a vision of “mobility for all”. The introduction of a light-weight, economical yet resilient car to meet the aspirations of young Japanese people in the early 1930s was named the ‘son of DAT’ – Datson – which later changed to Datsun. Local engineering and mass-production made the founder’s dream a reality.
