Best-selling bakkies in South Africa

We are finally able to confirm that the Toyota Hilux was the best-selling bakkie in South Africa in March 2024; not that many people will be surprised.

The country’s best-selling vehicles are usually revealed on the first day of every month by Naamsa, but the company recently confirmed to TopAuto that this report has been made redundant and is no longer available.

March’s sales statistics were therefore provided by Lightstone Auto, though unfortunately, this data only lists the 20 best-selling cars overall and does not give an in-depth breakdown of every model in South Africa.

Consequently, the best-selling bakkies list for March is much shorter than usual as only six models were able to crack the top 20.

The Toyota Hilux is a given with its 3,104 units – almost identical to February’s sales – but second place was a surprise.

This spot was claimed by the Nissan NP200, with the compact bakkie beating out the Isuzu D-Max and Ford Ranger at a staggering 2,679 units.

It’s not hard to imagine why, the NP200 was discontinued in March and many people were no doubt desperate to secure the compact utility vehicle before it is relegated to the pre-owned market.

Isuzu then pulled ahead of Ford in March with a small lead of 141 units leaving the Ranger in fourth place; the Mahindra Pik Up picked up the fifth position; and the GWM P-Series came in sixth.

Absent from the list, but not forgotten, are the Nissan Navara, VW Amarok, Toyota Land Cruiser, GWM Steed, JAC T-Series, Mitsubishi Triton, Mahindra Bolero, Peugeot Landtrek, and Jeep Gladiator, as we no longer have access to their data.

Also worth mentioning is that the Mazda BT-50 was recently discontinued, and so it would not have appeared on the list either way.
