Isuzu Bakkies Took the One Tank Economy Challenge from Johannesburg to Cape Town
In South Africa, it has always been common knowledge that an Isuzu is the most fuel-efficient bakkie on South African roads. Isuzu South Africa recently gave us hard evidence.
They took the new 1.9 Double Cab, Extended Cab and Single Cab and drove them from their offices in Woodmead Johannesburg to Signal Hill in Cape Town, a trip of just over 1400 km. All on only one tank of diesel.
At CMH Isuzu East Rand, we were very excited about this, as we have always known that our bakkies are the best on the road, and now we have proof.
The trip took the Isuzu South Africa team 3 days to complete, ensuring that all drivers were in tip-top shape for the drive. They stopped in Bloemfontein on the first day and Beaufort West on the second.
The third day was a bit of a nail-biter, as the predicted range on the vehicles showed that the drivers may have come up a little short of their target. At CMH Isuzu East Rand, we were not worried as we knew that an Isuzu does not disappoint, and we had faith that the vehicles would make it there.
All vehicles made it to Signal Hill with fuel to spare, with an average consumption of 7.02 l/100km or 14.2 km/litre. Proving once and for all that an Isuzu bakkie is the most fuel-efficient on the road.
With a 5-year or 120 000kms warranty and a 5-year or 90 000kms service plan, maintenance will never be a problem.
At CMH Isuzu East Rand, we have a wide range of bakkies and SUVs and the best deals and finance options.
