On the 19th of February Group 1 Taxi launched their partnership with SANTACO with Marcel Swanepoel, the Managing Director of Group 1 Nissan, presenting the NV350 to leading members of the taxi industry, government and the press.
We’ve already spoken about the return of Nissan to the South African taxi industry with its launch of the Nv350 Impendulo Taxi, so why does a taxi deal between Group 1 Taxi and SANTACO matter to the South African taxi industry?
Do you remember the E20? Chances are if you ever took a taxi in the eighties you would have taken a trip in the E20, Nissan’s Minibus Taxi. The E20 was exceptionally popular due to its strength and value for money. The E20 sold around 71 000 units in South Africa between 1973 and 1996 before Nissan stopped selling them in SA.
