Impendulo Minibus: The Answer Mzansi’s Been Looking For
Anybody who took a taxi in the ‘80s and ‘90s will remember Nissan’s E20, the iconic and immensely popular taxi. This taxi was so popular that it sold over 71 000 units between 1973 and 1996.
The name Impendulo, which means ‘Answer’ in Zulu, was chosen through consultation and collaboration between Nissan and the South African Taxi industry and is the spiritual successor to the Nissan E20 Minibus. As of March 2014, this Nissan 16-seater Bus has helped transport the more than 15 million people a day who rely on Minibus Taxis throughout South Africa.
But That’s Not All!
The Impendulo Minibus is helping to make the South African Taxi industry safer thanks to class-leading safety features such as driver and passenger airbags, safety belts on all 16 seats, Zone Body Structure that consists of safety and crushable zones, as well as security features such as an immobiliser and the Nissan developed DataDot vehicle identification system.
