Nissan Middle East affirmed the iconic Patrol’s SUV market share dominance within the region, announcing that over 20,000 Nissan Patrol vehicles were sold in the Gulf during the company’s 2020 fiscal year (FY20).
Nissan also revealed that the 2021 Patrol NISMO, the race-inspired version of the Patrol launched exclusively in the Gulf earlier this year, has been well received by the consumers.
“The success of the Patrol is due to its continued evolution to reflect the aspirations of our customers, as a powerful and luxurious vehicle that is capable of going anywhere, while ensuring riding comfort, safety and sophistication,” stated Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director, Nissan Middle East.
The Nissan Patrol features the strongest naturally-aspirated V6 and V8 engines in the segment – with a base 4.0-liter V6 which produces 275 horsepower and 394 Nm of torque, and a 5.6-liter V8 produces 400 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque.
The extensive Patrol line-up in the region also includes the Patrol Super Safari, which continued to transcend expectations of a 4WD vehicle with design and tech enhancements in its 2021 edition.
These announcements come as part of Nissan’s ongoing celebrations for the Patrol’s 70th anniversary this year – highlighting its significance to Nissan’s SUV heritage.
The Patrol’s deep-rooted connection to the Middle East can be traced back to its arrival to the region in 1956.
