Roots of the Datsun Pickup Truck

The roots of the Datsun Truck and Van go back to the first Datsun, made before the war. In 1932, when this first-generation model was launched, vehicles that combined a Type 10/11 chassis with a van body were on the roads, but the first proper commercial model was the Datsun 13 Truck of 1934. Before the war, models up to the 17T were produced, while after the war the Datsun Truck was revived as the 1121. The D22 model thus represents the 16th generation.

The Datsun 14 Truck was launched in February 1935.

In August 1958 full-scale exports started (220).
