Best-selling bakkies in South Africa

The Toyota Hilux continues to be the top pick for South African bakkie buyers with the Japanese high-rider attracting exactly 3,100 buyers in February.

Numbers two and three also remained unchanged in comparison to January, these positions going to the Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max which pulled in 2,187 and 1,740 sales, respectively.

The Nissan NP200 – which is being discontinued this March after more than 15 years on the market – still got an impressive 1,276 customers in February which saw it claim the fourth position.

In fifth sat the Mahindra Pik Up with 715 units rolling through dealership doors, followed by the Nissan Navara in sixth at 449 units, the GWM P-Series in seventh at 378 units, and the VW Amarok in eighth at 324 units.

In its first month on the market, the new Toyota Land Cruiser 79 doubled the sales statistics of the old model to 315 models, but despite this stellar showing, it remained steadfast in ninth position in the best-sellers ranks.

The 10th spot was claimed by the GWM Steed with 146 registrations, and 11th by JAC’s range of T-Series bakkies comprising the T6, T8, and T9, which collectively sold 143 units.

The well-known Mitsubishi Triton, which is being replaced by the new generation in a few months, scooped up 12th place thanks to its 88 sales, and 13th was awarded to the Mahindra Bolero which garnered 39 purchases.

Completing the list, the Peugeot Landtrek with 24 sales sat in the 14th position, the Mazda BT-50 with 15 sales in the 15th, and the Jeep Gladiator with eight sales in the 16th.

These top performers in the bakkie category accounted for 10,947 units of all the new vehicles sold in South Africa in February, or roughly 24% of the entire car market.
