This is not the 510 you are looking for. In fact, it’s got more in common with a Lada.

Nissan gave their first look at the upcoming low-cost Datsun brand, with a sketch of their Lada-based Datsun hatchback. Datsun’s official website is also live, in anticipation of the brand’s coming out party in India on July 15th. Our man in Asia Bertel Schmitt will be on hand at the event to give you all impressions of the car, and of course, paparazzi pics of Carlos Ghosn.

    Pity any new Datsun products will be marred by that purple discount electronics co. type emblem.

    Damn, was really hankering for a resurgence of the Datsun Honeybee/SSS B-210.

    We won’t see the Datsun stateside, but due to the lack of discount electronics stores in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, the logo will work just fine. While the sills look way above the wheel wells for that tall body look, it looks like the greenhouse has been raised to normal levels for the developing world, while we still get the gun slit styling. I guess we’re all perps: we’re not entitled to headroom either.
