Nissan NP200 now even more LOADED
- Eye-catching, distinctive and sporty upgrades for NP200
- Limited availability ensures exclusivity
- NP200 LOADED still features familiar versatility, reliability and value for money
ROSSLYN, South Africa (19 May 2014) – Nissan’s popular NP200 half-ton bakkie is now available in an exciting new limited edition. The locally-built and developed Nissan NP200 LOADED features a host of value-adding enhancements and special additions, and will be available in a production run of just 300 units.
Building on the NP200’s already impressive credentials, the new NP200 LOADED seeks to enhance its lifestyle and sports appeal with visual upgrades forming the essence of its unique list of accessories.
The Nissan NP200 is a dual-purpose vehicle, providing great versatility and practicality for business use with features includingan 800 kg payload, a standard rubberised load box (1 250 litres) and a specially-designed tailgate which can handle 300 kg – a feature common in much larger pickups. The tractable petrol engine in the LOADED limited edition makes load-lugging easier, with peak torque (200 Nm) available relatively low down in the rev range (3 000 rpm), matched to short ratios for the first three gears.
Personal use is enhanced by the smarty-designed and spacious cabin, which features numerous storage spaces for a practical and comfortable lifestyle vehicle.
NP200 Product Manager at Nissan South Africa, Isa Giunta comments: “The Nissan NP200 features class-leading specification, high quality levels and a tough personality. Features like this have seen over 63,000 NP200’s sold to date, proving time and again it is South Africa’s favourite half-ton bakkie. The large cabin and smart design has also been highlighted by our customers, who find the NP200 to be a reliable and great value-for-money bakkie with low service and parts costs.
“In the IPSOS product quality research survey, the NP200 was awarded the Overall Satisfaction title for its segment, two years in a row. The revered Kinsey report also points out that parts pricing is a very strong NP200 trait. In addition, the NP200 builds on the legendary reliability and strong South African ties created by its forebear, the Nissan 1400 Bakkie.
“We are delighted with the Nissan NP200 LOADED limited edition, which rides proudly on existing NP200 qualities and offers an exciting and sporty new look, while maintaining a great price.”
Nissan NP200 LOADED with value-adding equipment
As the name suggests, the new NP200 LOADED has been fitted with smart extras while maintaining top-level value-for-money. Based on the 64 Kw/ 128 Nm Nissan NP200 1.6 with air conditioning and the safety package (ABS and dual airbags), the NP200 LOADED is available exclusively in white, and features special “LOADED” branding which incorporates silver and red accents in the decals, carpets and seats.

On the outside, stainless steel nudge- and sports bars, black roof rails, a black tonneau cover and specially-designed Nissan-Concept alloy wheels complete the LOADED look.
All accessories have been specifically developed and approved for the NP200 LOADED and do not affect the vehicle’s standard and class-leasing 6-year/ 150 000 km warranty. Totalling a value-add of 29%, the extras fitted to the Nissan NP200 LOADED represent exceptional value and unique appeal, with a resultant vehicle price difference below their R25 000-extra worth and one which still makes the NP200 LOADED a class-leading value proposition.
