The Datsun XLink concept was the final thesis project of Benjamin Nawka, a German designer and graduate of Pforzheim University.

The XLink was developed at the Yulon Nissan Design Center in Taiwan.

The Datsun XLink is inspired by the popular and stylish Datsun 240Z from the 1970's. However unlike the two-door, two-seat 240Z the XLink is a four-door, four-seat coupe. But the basic idea of an affordable, fun, desirable vehicle remains.

The styling of the Datsun XLink concept is inspired by aircraft and architecture. These influences have resulted in chiseled lines, and small winglets over the front wheel arches and above the rear window. The invisible door handles and arching side windows cleverly mask the fact the XLink has four doors.

One of the Datsun XLink's most interesting features is the conceptual navigation and communication system. Called the XLink Experience, the system allows connected users to interact with one another, and it also offers up interesting destinations on demand to keep the occupants amused.

A ride-height adjustable chassis would allow the Datsun XLink concept to traverse relatively bad roads when necessary. Power for the concept comes from a two-mode diesel hybrid drivetrain.
