All The Brands And Companies That Used To Be Known By A Different Name

Some companies don’t necessarily change their name, they just expand it to cover other products. Remember Datsun?

We might be aging ourselves here, but we definitely rode around in a little Datsun from time to time when we were growing up. The small compact car brand was quite popular in the 70’s and 80’s. While Datsun was its own brand, it was owned and manufactured by Nissan. Up until 1981, trucks made by Nissan in the US were advertised and sold as Nissans. Datsun was used for branding on smaller compact cars. So Nissan and Datsun are the same company. As the company grew and began selling more cars around the world, they dropped the Datsun brand completely and started branding all of their cars under the Nissan name.
