In third place, some way behind the leaders, is the Nissan NP200 with 1562 units sold, ahead of the Isuzu KB (1273). In fifth place is the rugged Nissan NP300/Hardbody (745).
Nissan sold a huge number of Navaras; at 447 marks its highest sales month since its launch in March 2017. This could be attributed to new rear-wheel drive models added to the range.
In seventh place is the Toyota Land Cruiser pick-up (262), ahead of the Mahindra Scorpio pik-up (196).
The Volkswagen Amarok is in ninth place (176) while the GWM Steed completes the top ten with 163 units.
