Extending the Datsun redi-Go and Datsun Go+ under CSD along with our other existing Nissan and Datsun models, is another step to provide one more reason for our customers to take home their favourite vehicle topped with exclusive offers," said Arun Malhotra, Managing Director of Nissan Motor India.
