Nissan's second offering in India after the Datsun Go hatchback, Go+ will reportedly be offered only in petro variant in India, claims a new report.

Rushlane, which claims to have gotten the piece of information from Nissan's top officials, Kenichiro Yomura, President, Managing Director and CEO of Nissan India Operations, and Chikuya Takada, General Manager, Head of Product Planning, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd, said that the soon-to-be-launched Datsun Go+ will be available only in petrol option in the country.

Nissan Datsun Go+, a Nissan Micra based MPV is expected to make its grand debut in the country during this festive season. Given that the Honda Mobilio MPV's launch is also just around the corner, the competition in the MPV segment in India is getting tougher.

Falling under the sub-4 meter category to reap the benefit of subsidy in India , the new Nissan MPV is likely to carry a price tag in the range of ₹4.5 -6.5 lakh. In Indonesia, the vehicle is priced at Rp 85 million (₹4.42 lakh) for base variant and Rp 102.9 million (₹5.36 lakh) for top end model.

Under the bonnet, the Go+ MPV will pack 1,198 cc 3 cylinder 12 valve petrol motor, which can churn out a power of 68 PS @ 5,000 rpm and a peak torque of 104 Nm @ 4,000 rpm, coupled to 5-speed manual gearbox. If recent reports are to be believed Go+ MPV will be coming to India in three trims- D, A and T. The vehicle will take on the likes of Maruti Ertiga and Honda Mobilio in India.

Honda Mobilio, first MPV offering of Honda in the country is also expected in July. Underpinning Honda's popular Brio hatchback, the vehicle will be offered in both petrol and diesel engines in the country. Under the bonnet of petrol model, the car will pack 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol motor, which can churn out a power of 117bhp, and the diesel variant will come with 98bhp, 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel unit, which powers Honda's popular City and Amaze. The engine will come mated to a five-speed manual and CVT gearbox. While the diesel model of MPV Mobilio is expected to deliver 26 kmpl, the petrol version is likely to give 18 kmpl.
