• NP200 SA market leader
Nissan is celebrating its NP200 as a market leader in SA’s sub one-ton segment with a special-edition bakkie called Stealth.
As its name suggests, the Stealth has a black theme with dark decals and cosmetic enhancements throughout. It's being put together at Nissan’s Rosslyn factory in Gauteng.
The bakkie has aircon, anti-lock brakes, two air bags, dark-grey paint, a black grille bar and a flush-fitting load-bed cover.

It has black alloy rims with red accents, dark side and rear Stealth decals and tinted smash-and-grab film on the windows. There's also daytime running lights and central locking.
An Alpine radio, with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, is standard, along with leather seats with contrast stitching and Stealth-embroidered logos. The logo is repeated on the carpet.
BEST YEAR YET
Nissan celebrated its NP200’s best year yet in 2014 with 17 412 units sold, reports the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers. A spokesman said: “In 2014 the NP200 Loaded Special Edition was a big success but for 2015 we challenged our design and engineering team to push the boundaries.
“The result is the NP200 Stealth, a pick-up we believe will be even more successful, especially because it represents significant value and the quality of factory fitment.”
The NP200 Limited Edition is offered at R168 000 with a six-year or 150 000km warranty.
