Datsun South Africa welcomes visitors far and wide to Nampo for a special Datsun experience. Following the success of its Twitter Tug of War campaign, Datsun will add a some excitement to their stand this year by hosting a physical Tug of War where Nampo visitors will be able to test their strength and physically tug a Datsun vehicle.  

The brand will also have two heritage vehicles and the all-new Datsun GO and GO+ available to have a look at on the stand.

Nampo, hosted by Grain SA, is an annual Harvest Day held outside Bothaville in the Free State between 14-17 May.

This harvest day experience is an exhibition platform where producers come together to experience the latest technology in the business of commercial and general agriculture.

Here, car-collector Freek de Kock has built up a collection of rare and special Datsun and Nissan models that remains unrivalled outside of Nissan’s own vehicle museum in Japan, Zama Garage.

“We have over 200 models at our museum, of which many are in pristine condition, while others are in different stages of restoration,” says De Kock. “We look forward to welcoming fellow enthusiasts and Datsun fans, especially during this week’s NAMPO show outside of town.”

Datsun in South Africa

The Datsun GO is not only South Africa’s reigning cost-champion as indicated by the annual Kinsey Report, but the brand also recently launched its new Datsun GO and GO+ that’s stylish and comes with great new features and safety qualities. Standard specifications include coloured electric side mirrors, Apple & Android Auto CarPlay, reverse parking sensors, intermittent wipers, central locking, an immobilizer, ABS, driver and passenger airbags, and retractable seatbelts.

“We are thrilled to be back at Nampo this year as we continue to rekindle with our Datsun roots in South Africa. For those of you that still needs some convincing, a visit to the Datsun heritage museum – that’s now open to the public - is a brilliant idea to pick-up that love affair that you always knew existed,” says Kabelo Rabotho, Director of Marketing, Nissan South Africa.
