    Default Nissan goes Rogue with NP300 4x4 at Nampo

    BOTHAVILLE, South Africa (May 14, 201 Nissan returns to the NAMPO Agricultural Show in Bothaville in 2018 with a full array of pick-ups and commercial vehicles on display, including a special new version of its popular NP300 Hardbody.

    The new version of the NP300 Hardbody introduces Nissan’s tough and reliable 2.5 TDI four-cylinder turbodiesel engine to the 4x4 double cab range, creating a new flagship model. The engine delivers 98 kW and 304 Nm of torque and is one of Nissan’s most popular engines for its extreme durability, ease of servicing and low fuel consumption.

    “The new Nissan NP300 2.5 TDI 4x4 Double Cab is perhaps the best proof of our close relationship with the agricultural community. The model was created after we received feedback from farmers and dealers in rural communities on the need for a diesel-powered off-road capable NP300 double cab,” says Xavier Gobille, Managing Director for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Nissan Group of Africa.

    “We obliged with the NP300 2.5TDI 4x4 Double Cab, which has been thoroughly tested and which we will introduce across South Africa, Namibia and other neighbouring countries in July this year.”

    The new NP300 2.5TDI 4x4 Double Cab takes centre stage at the Nampo Show, where it has been fitted with a range of additional luxuries to create the Rogue Special Edition. The luxuries include black alloy wheels, Rogue-decals, black-embroidered leather seats and a plush carpet set.

    The Rogue NP300 will also be equipped with an upgraded audio system with integrated Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation.

    Nissan’s NP300 is a perennial best-seller, especially to specialist industries such as farming, mining and the South African Police Service. It is known for its robust build quality and low cost of ownership and is the low-cost class leader in the annual Kinsey Report for the cost of repairs and servicing.

    “While the new model will be welcomed by farmers, we are sure it will also find favour with budget-conscious families and outdoor enthusiasts. It is by no means a stripped down bakkie as it features ample specification levels, yet it will be one of the most affordable 4x4-model double cabs in the market when it is launched,” says Gobille.

    Nissan will showcase its entire range of pick-ups at Nampo, including the new Navara 4x2 double cab, the best-selling NP200 and the heavy-duty Patrol Pick-Up. The latter will be on display in a very large sandpit, where children can play in the sand while their parents walk around the show.

    Aside from its range of pick-ups, which is the largest of any manufacturer in South Africa, Nissan will also showcase its recently upgraded Nissan X-Trail and its popular Qashqai. It has also created a special Performance Corner, which will have a brutal Nissan GT-R and the recently upgraded Nissan 370Z on display, complete with radio-controlled replicas of both cars that guests can race around the stand.

    The NAMPO Harvest Day Festival will take place near Bothaville in the Free State from 15 to 18 May 2018.

    Will merge. I have started media releases from the manufacturers etc, and started adding them here when it is on topic for the users here.

    This is the Bakkie Reenen told us about a year ago.

    Glad it finally arrived.

    But no pricing?

    The Mahindra S10 will be serious competition, so they need to price it under R360k

    Wont be close to 300k... the 360k-380k range seems more probable.
    If they ask under 300k in Nam, why inflate prices so much over here?

    But Nissan SA isn't known for their good marketing.

    We're talking Nissan SA... Nothing is going to happen. And if they even get it right to launch a new model NP300 here, they'll mess the marketing up in any case...
