The word "Do" related to a Japanese traditional culture that can be translated into "move", while "on" indicates adjective or verb. When "Datsun" is added, it means a desire to open up access to mobility and freedom of movement for all.[2]

The on-Do utilises a 1.6 L (98 cu in) straight-four engine that produces 87 hp (65 kW; 88 PS). The power is transmitted to the wheels using a 5-speed manual transmission.[1] A 4-speed Jatco automatic gearbox is available since 2016.[3]

The gear ratio of the main pair of the Datsun mechanical box is 3.7, as is the case with Granta. Automatic the transmission (AKPP) on sedan Datsun[4] the manufacturer decided not to put. But it is already known for sure that the machine will appear on the hatchback Datsun mi-DO.
