The length of the new SUV will be less than 4 metres and its style can match to that of Tata Nexon. The car will have a turbocharge 10 L single engine motor. It will have no diesel option variant.

The other models which are higher than this rate will be under the Nissan group. The president of the company says that they want to make the two brands establish themselves in the market. The company was founded in 2014. It doesn’t gain much success. The company had to struggle for their position in the market. This happened as they don’t have any refreshed line-up and its rivals were doing great at that time. This made them struggle a lot. However, during the festive season, it is expected that the launch of GO and GO+ will be a great opportunity for the company to establish themselves in the market.
“At the moment, we don’t have a strong product portfolio, so we are trying to fix that,” the president of the company said. “Yes, our lifecycle management is not the best at the moment, but you will see that we will have a major event every six months from this festival season onwards,” he explained.
