While there are several different models in their product line, the bakkie is by far one of the most popular – and you can’t walk through the average building site without seeing a few of them around to do the heavy lifting.
Their bakkie models were first introduced to South Africa in the 1960s, and they’ve even become known as a great family car for some families who just wanted to make it to the drive in to park in the back of the bakkie for the movie.
In more modern times, they still deliver exceptional quality cars and bakkies to the consumer market, and they are still just as great to drive, with better handling on the road than you might expect under almost any conditions.
Many of the most popular models are even produced right in South Africa at one of their many factories, including Rosslyn (Pretoria).
