Datsun this week showcased a new concept car based on its Go hatchback- the Datsun Go Live- at the 2017 GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show.
This new concept hatchback will come with futuristic style and design, which according to Datsun is created particularly for young Indonesians for who customizing vehicles is important. This shows that even if the production of the car starts the chances of the Datsun Go Live launching in India might be very low.
About the new GO Live Concept Kei Kyu, Datsun’s executive design director said, “If the GO live could be summed up in a single word, it would be ‘freestyle’. The car reflects the fun, expressive and liberating attitude that Indonesian car enthusiasts have toward their vehicles. Jakarta is such an exciting place, and we wanted to capture the power and passion of the city with this car. The GO live was created to show the ‘freestyle’ mindset of young Indonesian drivers, as well as the diverse character of the GO itself. In short, it’s meant to be fun, upbeat and cool.”
According to Datsun the Go Live concept is designed to reflect the modern trends and style of the youth. The Go Live concept comes with an indifferent camouflage-style paint scheme with bright yellow accents throughout the body, which is similar to patterns and colors commonly seen on many of today’s trendy clothes, shoes and accessories. The car will get 17 inch alloy wheels painted in the same grey and yellow color that matches. While the sporty side skirts add a nice flare to the profile to the car.
Kei Kyu said, “”We didn’t want to just have a sporty execution of the design – like having it sit low to the ground and extra wide – because that’s so typical and predictable in today’s world,” he added, “Instead, we wanted to show that this car makes a strong design statement to our customers, who express themselves through their vehicles and help them celebrate their passions.”
Datsun has not revealed anything in terms of powertrain options but like the India spec Go hatchback, the model sold in the Indonesian market is also powered by the 1.2-litre petrol engine that is capable of churning out 67 bhp and 104 Nm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox.
