• Datsun 310

The Nissan Cherry (original Datsun Cherry) is a 1970-1987 built cars in the compact class of the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan. The name "Cherry" is a reference to the country of origin of the vehicle Japan which is famous for its cherry blossom festival. Originally start the development of the model by the Prince Motor Company which planned a mass mobile with front engine and front wheel drive. After Nissan took over Prince in 1966, was decided from the plans to develop a vehicle for Datsun to the offer of a Datsun than mass producers above the Datsun Sunny Datsun Bluebird and below the supplement. In Japan, different dealer networks a manufacturer at that time were normal. This time were the Sunny and the Bluebird Shop Store At Nissan. The Sunny Shop stood for simplest equipped models and the Bluebird Store for higher equipped models including the time the only Nissan cars Nissan Cedric was located in the upper class. Da Prince produced almost only top-class automobiles, thus a repositioning had to take place. Even before the publication of the Cherry Cherry Branch was thus created where the buyer is now able to purchase vehicles with a medium level of equipment, while upper class models as well as sports cars and coupes were sold through Nissan-Prince store.

When market entry of the cherry in the fall of 1970, however, this was first sold through selected retailers in the so-called Nissan Cherry Shop. A little later there was next to this, only the Nissan Satio Shop for the previous Sunny Store, because Nissan Bluebird Nissan shop and the store for the upper class.

During the Cherry was shortly after the start of production exported as the Datsun Datsun 120A 100A or depending on the engine size in some European countries such as the United Kingdom, he started as the Datsun Cherry in 1972 in Germany. From 1978, the Cherry was a service offered on the domestic market and in North America, Nissan Pulsar but which continue to be offered as the Datsun Cherry due to the then non-existent in Europe Nissan brand.

The last in Europe in mid-1982 offered as a three-generation, as well as five-door hatchback, was then marketed as Nissan Cherry. The same name was also offered on the domestic market, parallel to the other versions of the Nissan Pulsar. A collaboration between Nissan and Alfa Romeo Arna brought the show, the., In some European countries such as Austria was marketed as Nissan Cherry Europe. With the marketing of the Nissan Pulsar N13 in Europe Nissan Sunny N13 Cherry was replaced in 1986 indirectly through a lower-equipped version of the Sunny.

In October 1970, the sale of the Cherry E10 in Japan began. He was the first model from Nissan with front wheel drive.

At the start of a two-or four-door sedan was available. The drive took over the Datsun A four-cylinder petrol engine with overhead valves as 100A with 1.0 liters (33 kW/45hp) and a 120A with 1.2-liter displacement (38 kW/52hp), each with four-speed manual transmission. The wheels were suspended individually in front by Macphersonfederbeinen and wishbones and rear of parallel swing and coil springs.

The mold was also "eyeliner" referred by the characteristic shape of the side window, which resembled the shape of the eye. The styling of the C-pillar and the shape of the triangle window was based on the fashion of the 1960s in the United States.

Shortly after the start of production of export began as Datsun 100A or 120A Datsun depending on the engine size in some European countries such as Britain and as the Datsun 1000 to Oceania. In September 1971, the three-door station wagon coupe followed with an optional variant of the 1.2 liter with dual carburetors and 59 kW/80hp. In March 1972, this engine was also available for the 2-door sedan. Based on these was also a Van-called van/estate introduced, which differed by reaching up to the bumper tailgate, others folded back, the attributable rear side windows in the panel van and another chassis. The van was built in Fujisawa Isuzu Motors factory. Nissan and Isuzu worked in commercial vehicles.

In April 1972, a racing version of the coupe was introduced and as of June 1972, the size of the front and rear bumpers, as well as the taillights of limousines has been changed. A three-speed automatic transmission was now an option.

The successor Cherry F-II (F10) was launched in September 1974 on the domestic market. Technically, the F-II on the E10 and the design was designed a little "baroque". The design is considered only moderately on the export markets, which is why the export of its predecessor continues, partly parallel to the new model.

In the basic design and the model selection is hardly anything had changed. The vehicles were designed slightly larger in dimensions as you (only coupe and wagon) were now available in North America as the Datsun 210 offered. Therefore, a 1.4-liter engine of the A-series was built, which carried 59 kW/80hp.

In New Zealand, the model has been manufactured as a four-door sedan with the 1.0 liter engine 100A by CKD kit way. It was at that time the model with the smallest engine in the market, even the Morris Mini had with 998 cm ² more displacement. It was built here until the end of 1980 until the production of Cherry N10 hatchback began.

With the start of the series N 10, the sign had changed. At the end of 1977, the new generation debuted as a Nissan Pulsar on the home market.

Actually, we planned a version with longitudinal engine and rear wheel drive for emerging markets, which is reflected in the long hood of the Pulsar/Cherry N10 noticeable, so there was also the new name.

Started as three-and five-door hatchback and three-door station wagon coupe, three-door panel van and five-door station wagon followed in early 1978 in response to the success of the Toyota Sprinter, Honda Civic and Mazda 323 as Liftback versions of Cherry N10 in the home market as three-and five-door hatchback.

From the summer of 1978 to start the export, this means that the series in Australia and Malaysia Datsun Pulsar, as well as in South Africa where the hatchback models are now also produced. In various markets in Europe and Asia in turn Datsun Cherry N10 or Datsun 100A-150A depending on the engine. In the USA, however, the model Datsun 310 Combi Coupe was called Nissan Pulsar. In Canada, where Nissan first introduced the model in turn completely Nissan Pulsar.

In Germany the market launch of the combi coupe and hatchback variants Pulsar as the Datsun Cherry N10 in August 1978, with the five-door station wagon was also from October to offer. The sedan version of the Pulsar is not offered in Europe, as this is the technically nearly identical Datsun Sunny on offer.

In April 1982, the Cherry (code: N12) starts on the home market. This is a more advanced version of the Nissan Pulsar (N12) as three-and five-door hatchback. The Nissan Pulsar is again a higher positioned variant of the Nissan Sunny B11, which is available in North America as the Nissan Sentra. This brings both optical and technically not yet known proximity between the model series.

The station wagon and the ancestor’s similar combi coupe are now marketed as the Sunny B11 and offered in Germany since June 1982. The estate version of its predecessor Cherry N10 is still available until the end of 1983 as a cheaper variant of the Sunny station wagon. The van is replaced by the Nissan AD. Parallel to the home market, the Nissan Pulsar is also offered in North America. Especially for this purpose also the combi coupe Pulsar EXA is developed which not to Europe is imported.

So the Cherry N12 was basically only the hatchback version of the Sunny B11 and N12 Pulsar and therefore also came largely through its range of engines. In addition to the known motors there was in October 1982, for the first time in Cherry a 1.7-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, 40 kW/54hp which carried.

1982 joined Nissan and Alfa Romeo, a joint venture, from which in 1983 the Alfa Romeo Arna and emerged in some European markets, the Nissan Cherry Europe or Nissan Cherry special. In Japan this was marketed as Nissan Pulsar Milano.

As early as 1985 ended, the joint venture between Nissan and Alfa Romeo, the sale of Arna and Cherry Europe/Special lasted until 1986.

End of 1986, the sales on the domestic market and in most export markets was set up in October 1987, the model was still produced for Holden and some export markets.

The import of the three-and five-door hatchback as the Nissan Cherry N12 to Germany began in October 1982 with the 1.3 liter engine as GL to a new price of 13795 DM import end. The November 1983 the 1.5 liter variant offered Cherry N12 Special with 75hp cost 14895 DM import end.
