I can't imagine another Datsun that costs 1 lakh less than the Go. What else can they skimp on the already barebones Go hatch? Even if they remove AC and PS, that'll only save ~40k. What else to remove the remaining 60k?

Probably a cylinder chopped off from the current 1.2L engine and may be canvas top and door-less frame like the Mahindra jeeps?
For any car maker to go below 3 lakhs; Nano should be a bench mark; I have owned 1 for over a year and can safely say that for 2.5 lakhs, nothing can beat the Nano. With the power steering option coming now; this car is small wonder.

They have initiated a radio campaign on a couple of radio stations here in Mumbai, for Datsun 'Go's impending launch.

From the pictures posted, the rear is similar to the Etios the side profile, of the Indigo and front is hideous, IMO.

Wonder if the pricing would really be under 4 lacs?

Looks like Nissan's existing dealers are setting up exclusive Datsun dealerships. Yesterday there was an advertisement from Oxford Nissan - Pune for their Datsun Dealership for recruitment. In the advertisement, it was mentioned that, new Datsun Dealership will be inaugurated by March-'14.

Makes sense. I've always wondered how can they promote Go and Micra Active from the same showroom without demeaning the other.

Looks like Nissan has left it up to the existing dealers to decide whether to run it from the same showroom or from a different showroom. I'm not sure if all dealers would have the real estate available for an additional showroom
