Nissan rebadged the Datsuns for the same reason that Mitsubishi rebadged themselves from Colt in some markets - worldwide consistency in marketing.

In both cases the "brands" that were being used were originally car model names that non-japanese distributors decided to use as brands for various reasons.

Personally I preferred the Datsun Insult.
