    A bit about Datsun

    Datsun is a Japanese car manufacturer based in Tokyo. The brand is parented by Nissan and serves as its more affordable line of vehicles started in 1931. The brand’s name was based on the initials of founders Kenjiro Den, Rokuro Aoyama, and Meitaro Takeuchi and was originally given to a single compact car called the ‘Dat’. Dat Motorcar Co was established in 1925 and originally offered trucks given the lack of demand for passenger cars.

    It wasn’t until 1931 that the first Datsun (originally named ‘Datson’ to mean ‘son of Dat’) prototype was made. Known as the Type 10, only ten were sold, the Type 11, released the following year, upped sales to around 150. By 1937, the brand was making over 8,000 cars including those intended for export to the Australian market.

    As with many long-standing car manufacturers around the world, war challenged the early days of Datsun, forcing them to make military vehicles and abandon their passenger car efforts for several years. Post war production began again in 1947 but it was not until nearly a decade later that the marque was offering complete vehicles locally made with their own technology.

    Datsun’s move into the American market was heavily impacted by Nissan’s war efforts. The brand needed to distance itself from Nissan and any negative association this could have on American consumers, while still appealing to young car-buying market segment present there. Datsun entered the American market in 1958, though in 1962 they also released a Nissan model, the Patrol, which would be the first Nissan product in the US prior to the brand’s official launch many years later.

    Datsun arrived in Britain in 1935. The brand was well received, selling over 6,000 in a year by 1972. Nissan became a dominant name in the car market in terms of market share within the 1980s and so the Datsun name was slowly phased out, to be replaced by Nissan badging. By 1984, Nissan had completely replaced the Datsun name in Britain. This name change would be replicated across all markets and by the 2000s the name would be virtually non-existent with the exception of a Nissan model bearing its name launched in Japan.

    However, by 2014, the name Datsun had been revived in the select markets of Russia, India, Nepal, South Africa, Indonesia, and India. The brand was intended to champion affordable and reliable vehicles which continue to be its main offering in these regions.
