The Affordable Workhorse

Living in South Africa, we are all familiar with our term for a compact pick-up truck – a bakkie. A host of automotive manufacturers around the world have been selling bakkies to markets in countries with booming industrial sectors, including South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia. Companies such as Holden, the Australian GM division, Chevrolet, and BMW created their own luxury versions of the pick-up truck, with the rear of the vehicle configurable with a canopy and other accessories.

In South Africa, car culture has always been unique and discerning, but everyone fell in love with the concept of bakkies that can be used on the farm for loading, towing, and transportation, while providing a road legal vehicle for general use. Although the bakkie is at heart intended for industrial use, many South Africans drive one as a daily driver as opposed to using it as the proper workhorse it is intended to be. No matter the reason behind your love for bakkies, JMC offers a viable and exceptionally affordable option for sale in South Africa.
