The Datsun on-DO is the brand's first offering in Russia. It is a four-door, five-seat roomy family sedan (L 4337 mm / W 1700 mm / H 1500 mm) with a class-leading trunk capacity of 530L.
The name reflects the car's multicultural influences. "DO" is a word deeply embedded in the Japanese psyche, meaning "way," and reflects a consistent and distinctive way of doing things. It can also mean "moving," so the Datsun "on-DO" moniker's overall meaning refers to the brand intention of providing mobility for all in an innovative way. "On," meanwhile, is the Russian word for "he," underlining the car's strength, performance and masculinity. And both words also have clear meanings in English suggesting a positive dynamism.
Styling of the Datsun on-DO was completed in Japan at the company's advanced Global Design Center. The vehicle's development and engineering was carried out in Russia by an international team of engineers at AVTOVAZ, backed by the full quality and technical assurance that comes with every product from the Nissan Motor Corporation. The mix of global and local inputs means the car's modern and distinctive looks and performance are complemented by a base DNA perfectly suited to the Russia's driving and climatic conditions.
Power will come from a proven, robust and pleasant to drive 1.6-litre, petrol engine, rated at 87 hp.
Datsun on-DO is built in Russia at the AVTOVAZ plant in Togliatti.
