Datsun is introducing a new sport version of redi-GO to celebrate the festive season in India.

The sporty-themed redi-GO is priced at INR 3, 49,479 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and will be available for sale during the festive season.

Datsun also announced today that world-class female wrestler Sakshi Malik will be the face of the Datsun redi-GO SPORT. Sakshi, who rapidly rose to fame during the Rio Olympics, is India’s first female wrestler to win an Olympic medal. She exemplifies the spirit of young India, having faced and triumphed over obstacles in her path such as exceling in a sport that some had termed “not for girls.” Sakshi will be featured in an upcoming Datsun advertising campaign for the Datsun redi-GO SPORT.

During the event Sakshi Malik was honoured for her achievement at the Rio Olympic Games with a brand new Datsun redi-GO SPORT, presented to her by Arun Malhotra, managing director, Nissan Motor India.

Now we are delighted to introduce the limited edition Datsun redi-GO SPORT, which adds a sporty-themed option for customers during the festive season. We also celebrate our new association with Sakshi Malik, whose world-class performance in Rio brought her into all our hearts, and who perfectly embodies Datsun’s philosophy of #ISayYes to having a dream and achieving it.”

Commenting on her association with Datsun, Sakshi Malik said “I am thrilled to partner with Datsun, a brand that is a true representation of the young achievers. I believe that Datsun redi-GO is a perfect fit for me, as I am always in pursuit of achieving my dreams and I believe that I am going to connect to every Datsun redi-GO owner, all driving towards achieving their dreams.
