Datsun Car Models List

Datsun is an automobile trademark owned by the motor giant, Nissan. Datsun started producing its own lineup of cars in 1931. During the years 1958 to 1986, the vehicles that were manufactured by Nissan were released under the Datsun name. By the end of the time range, Nissan phased out the name but relaunched it just this 2013 to make it as the brand for low-cost Nissan vehicles.

Being a separate company before in 1931, Dat Motorcar Co. created and named their newest small car “Datson”. Three years after, Nissan acquired the company and decided to change its name from Datson to Datsun. The reason behind this is due to superstition because “son” is also translated as loss in Japanese. Sun is also represented as the sun in the Japanese flag.

In 1986, they pulled out the name from their market. Datsun was acclaimed for its models Fairlady coupes, Fairlady roadsters, and the 510 model.

The first Datson prototype was made in the first quarter of 1931. It was initially called the Datson Type 10, and ten units of this model was sold during that time. The following year, Datson sold around 150 cars which they called Datson Type 11.

When Nissan entered the American market in 1958, they only produced trucks and no cars. All their cars were branded to be Datsun. Only after two years did they started on using Nissan as brand to their automobile models in the US. These said models are high-end, including the luxury Cedric sedan.

    A car that doesn’t blur the lines of delivering what it’s meant to give, the Datsun On-DO can be considered as a vehicle that offers safety without compromising on some sense of style.

    Driver-Centric, Especially in Colder Regions

    One of the best highlights of the Datsun On-DO is its priority to keep a driver and his or her passengers comfortable during cold weather. With front seats that warm with a simple press of a button, to the heated windshields that assures of clear view even in foggy situations, the Datsun On-DO definitely focuses on the driver’s safety!

    Don’t Judge a Subcompact by its Exterior

    Though it may seem small, the Datsun On-DO does provide ample space for passengers. Additionally, a “sporty” look is incorporated in the design, bringing in a fun factor for anyone to appreciate and enjoy in a ride.
