DATSUN South Africa welcomed visitors far and wide to Nampo car show for a special Datsun experience.

Following the success of its Twitter Tug of War campaign, Datsun added some excitement to their stand this year by hosting a physically Tug of War where Nampo visitors tested their strength by tugging a Datsun.

The brand has two heritage vehicles and the all-new Datsun GO and GO+ available.

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

This harvest day experience was an exhibition platform where producers come to experience the latest technology.

While in town, they could take a short, 15-minute drive to the Datsun Heritage Museum.

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,” said De Kock.

The Datsun GO is not only Mzansi’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, with great new features.

Standard specifications include coloured electric side mirrors, Apple & Android Auto CarPlay, reverse parking sensors, intermittent wipers, central locking, an immobiliser, ABS, driver and passenger airbags, and retractable seatbelts.

People will now be able to own the zippy Datsun GO Mid Spec for R1 999 per month, or the Datsun GO+ Mid Spec for R2 260 per month.

This is with a 10% deposit.

All new Datsun cars are now covered by a Datsun Warranty of six-years/150 000 kilometres, doubling the amount of time the customer can enjoy care-free motoring. As part of this warranty, Datsun will also offer road-side assistance and customer contact centre that will be available for customers to call toll-free every hour of the day, every day of the year.
