Nissan has long since been the small bakkie market leader with it’s NP200, because there are no other half-ton bakkie available in South Africa anymore! It’s the only right-hand-drive half-ton bakkie available because it’s actually still made in South Africa. The last time the Nissan NP200 half ton bakkie had a competitor was 2017 when the last of the Chevy Utility bakkies (a re-badged Opel Corsa Utility) were sold – because Chevrolet pulled out of the country for good.
Thankfully it’s not all gloom and doom as you can still buy an aftermarket warranty for your Nissan NP200 bakkie and an extended warranty for the Chevy Utility, or any of the half ton bakkies as it’s less than 10 years old.

Nissans Bigger NP300 Hardbody One Ton Bakkie
We’ve had the hard working NP300 Hardbody in South Africa for well over 15 years but as of November 2021, it was retired and replaced with the all new Nissan Navara, but a much lower spec version (and nowhere near the spec of the Mercedes X Class bakkie). Just incase you’re living under a cactus, Mercedes launched a bakkie in 2018 and it was built on the Nissan Navara platform. It was highly criticized for being a rebadged Navara with Mercedes interfaces, and poor sales resulted in it being discontinued in 2020.
So we say “farewell” to the NP300 bakkie and thank you for the good service! You can keep driving your NP200 and NP300 Hardbody for many years to come with a motor warranty plan from Warranty Extender by leaving your details below.
