Datsun in 1:37

Nissan has produced a short video showcasing the history of Datsun, a brand which was well-known globally and is now on the return with a new Datsun Go car which made its first delivery in India this week.

Datsun is a storied nameplate and one that all of us likely recognize, though what we associate with it may differ according to our age and location. For some, it’s teh Fairlady taht became the Z, for others the 210, for still others, their small pickups. This fun video encapsulates the Datsun brand from its first day as a vision in 1910 through to today.
