The year kicked off with sales being down year-on-year but despite April being a traditionally weak month for sales, it proved to be the first month of the year that sales picked up rather than its projected decline.

Locally, Gauteng leads the way with 20 135 units sold since January 2019, followed by KwaZulu-Natal (7307) and the Western Cape (6509).

The Toyota Hilux lead the charge as South Africa's undisputed bakkie king.

The Hilux returned a sales figure of 12 961 units sold, according to Naamsa, and is followed by the Ford Ranger on 8783 units. The Nissan NP200, despite dropping a few sales in April, retains its overall third spot with 6341 units sold, ahead of the Isuzu D-Max/KB on 5127 units.
