    Datsun in Spain with the 370Z.

    In Spain – except in the Canary Islands, where it has had an importer – the Datsun brand is almost completely unknown, as the import of vehicles at the time of maximum international splendour is very limited, especially with models such as the Datsun 240Z, a sports car that left its mark in the middle of the planet and whose sequel we know today as Nissan 370Z.

    Their forms had the clear objective of seducing the American public, the most important market in the world, with a long front and a rear fastback inspired by models such as the Mustang.

    Datsun, Nissan and Infiniti, a brand for each segment.

    Today, the Datsun brand exists in some markets with the same role as Dacia for Renault, economical, simple and practical models. One could say that Nissan has 3 ranges: Datsun for low-cost vehicles, Infiniti for luxury models and Nissan for mid-range models.
