Nissan India has confirmed that the company is going to offer a new CVT variant on the Datsun GO and GO+ this Diwali. Moreover, the Nissan Kicks CVT will also follow.
The automotive industry is going through a tough time recently due to the decreasing sales figure. The slow-selling business has pushed the carmakers toward renovating their offerings and bringing out more attractive discounts and options. Moreover, the upcoming regulations also force carmakers to reform and update their current models. As a result, the current market has seen a wave of new offers popping up on the scene. Many carmakers have started to offer automatic variants on their current non-automatic models. Recently, Tata Motors has launched the AMT version of the Harrier and Tigor. Mahindra also introduced the XUV300 AMT at the price of Rs 11.5 lakh. Recently Nissan India has confirmed the arrival of the CVT versions of the hatchback Datsun Go and crossover Datsun Go+, two models owned by Nissan’s sub-brand–Datsun.

Besides the addition of the CVT version on the Datsun Go and Datsun Go+, the carmaker also updates these models along with Nissan Kicks to meet with the upcoming BSVI emission norms.
