Before the Datsun brand name came into being, an automobile named the DAT car was built in 1914, by the Kaishinsha Motorcar Works (快進自動車工場 Kaishin Jidōsha Kōjō), in the Azabu-Hiroo District in Tokyo. The new car's name was an acronym of the surnames of the following company partners:
Kenjirō Den (田 健次郎 Den Kenjirō)
Rokurō Aoyama (青山 禄朗 Aoyama Rokurō)
Meitarō Takeuchi (竹内 明太郎 Takeuchi Meitarō)
