Datsun originated in Japan as DAT-GO (the DAT-car) almost a century ago in 1914.
DAT means lightning-fast in Japanese but is also a reference to the first letters of family names of the three financiers who supported the business at the time: Den, Aoyama and Takeuchi.
Nissan Motor had announced the return of the Datsun brand, Nissans third global brand, alongside Nissan and Infiniti, in March 2012.
Datsun vehicles will start sales operations in India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa this year.
