The sales figures for January 2019 are in … and exactly 600 units separate the top two vehicles as the battle for the title of South Africa’s best-selling bakkie starts all over again.

According to Naamsa, January’s new vehicle industry sales came in at 42 374 units, representing a decrease of 7,4 percent, year on year. The light commercial segment (11 681 units), meanwhile, remained steady compared with the corresponding month of the previous year.

So, what exactly happened in terms of bakkie sales in the first month of 2019? Well, the Toyota Hilux – which was the best-selling bakkie range in SA in 2018, a whopping 9 877 units ahead of its nearest rival – started the year on top, with the Ford Ranger again taking second place.

The Nissan NP200, meanwhile, held steady in third spot, with the Isuzu D-Max – which has switched from the KB badge – remaining in fourth (its final figure comprised 821 units of the D-Max and 271 units of the KB). The Nissan NP300/Hardbody again rounded out the top half of the table, retaining fifth place.

The Mahindra Pik-Up climbed two places to sixth, while the Volkswagen Amarok fell one to seventh. The Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up dropped a place to eighth, while the GWM Steed climbed one to ninth. The Nissan Navara grabbed the final spot on the table.

That means there was no room for the Mahindra Bolero (69), Mitsubishi Triton (26), Mazda BT-50 (25) or Fiat Fullback (16) in January. Unfortunately, Mercedes-Benz South Africa doesn’t report individual model sales, so it’s hard to tell exactly how many X-Class units were sold during the month.

See the top ten list below, and have a look at December 2018’s figures here.

South Africa’s 10 best-selling bakkies of January 2019:

1. Toyota Hilux – 2 794
2. Ford Ranger – 2 194
3. Nissan NP200 – 1 483
4. Isuzu KB/D-Max – 1 092
5. Nissan NP300/Hardbody – 621
6. Mahindra Pik-Up – 266
7. Volkswagen Amarok – 231
8. Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up – 228
9. GWM Steed – 192
10. Nissan Navara – 113
