Kei Kyu, Executive Design Director, Datsun, said, “We didn’t want to just have a sporty execution of the design – like having it sit low to the ground and extra wide – because that’s so typical and predictable in today’s world. Instead, we wanted to show that this car makes a strong design statement to our customers, who express themselves through their vehicles and help them celebrate their passions.
