New Nissan combines work and play

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 7 – DT Dobie has launched the Nissan NP200 which comes in the footsteps of the Nissan 1/2ton B140.

The new ¾ ton NP200 pick-up will build upon the attributes of its predecessor which are tough, work-horse reliability and add on a youthful energy in its design while promising the lowest possible levels of overall running and repair costs.

The 1.6 litre engine pick-up which has a1807mm load-body, the longest in its class, can carry up to 800Kg and will retail at Sh1.2 Million VAT inclusive. The pick-up is targeted at small scale farmers, retailers, suppliers to mini markets and fleet customers.  It can also be used for leisure activities.

"Safety is a key at DT Dobie and we have launched a pickup unrivalled in this area. Crumple zones are engineered around impact resistance while the engine compartment is designed to stack up in frontal impact collisions. 

The restraint system includes three-point seat belts; impact absorbent material underfoot in the dashboard and the doors provide hip and limb protection" said Zarak Khan Managing Director DT Dobie during the launch of the vehicle.

"We organize financing where the customer pays a deposit of Sh139,000 then makes monthly repayments on the balance depending on the period of time they are comfortable with. This way, the car pays for itself month after month," he said.

Other features on the NP200 include higher ground clearance (15 inch wheels), large interior cabin space, Rubberised load box protection, Power steering, Anti-theft with immobilizer and a Front anti-roll bar.

Having been launched in South Africa in November 2008, the NP200 will be a big hit in the market for the small and upcoming business people who need a vehicle to run around with while transporting their goods but don\’t have sufficient capital to buy a 1 ton pick-up.
