Stellantis variety for all at NAMPO 2024

The Stellantis stand at NAMPO 2024 shares lots in common with the legendary harvest day exhibition as it celebrates connectivity for sustainable growth. The products on display from FIAT, Citroën, Alfa Romeo, the Jeep® brand, PEUGEOT and Opel are making mobility as relevant for farmers as agriculture in a digital age.

“This year, NAMPO resonates with Stellantis as it drives innovation in the agriculture sector,” said Mike Whitfield, Managing Director of Stellantis South Africa. “Our own products feature the latest technologies and our range answers a variety of agricultural needs, whether on the farm, within distribution, for maintenance crews, elsewhere in the extensive value chain, or simply for leisure.”

NAMPO has taken the lead to display agricultural innovation on a one-stop platform since inception in 1967. It remains a common meeting point outside Bothaville in the Free State for this critical sector to interact and do business, whether a small enterprise or commercial-scale farming operation.

The Stellantis stand is also an exciting meeting place with an extensive display of its products and a team eager to interact with visitors.

In its first public display, the new Citroën C3 Aircross breaks cover at NAMPO. The new crossover is the ideal SUV for city and leisure. With a more robust stance and enhanced features, the C3 Aircross is the ultimate incarnation of Citroën’s Car of the Year finalist that will be launched to the South African market later this month.

Under welcome shade from the Free State sun, Fiat’s 500 Dolcevita Cab may not strike visitors as ready for the harvest. But those students studying agricultural economics may find it just the trick. Certainly, Fiat’s Fiorino is an ideal fit for small distribution and transport businesses for fresh produce to market or feed to stables. The clever van offers 2,5m3 of secure stowage space or 610kg of payload, while offering economical fuel consumption of 4,4 l/100km for those larger fleets.

Continuing the van theme, the Opel Zafira Life is the perfect choice for management team commutes – or just the family holiday away from the farm. But Opel could set to work with its Vivaro Panel Van or Combo Cargo if it came to it.

The Jeep range is a natural fit for farmland living

the range’s capability proven for land inspections, its features and reliability comforting for those days working less hard. Whether the Gladiator Rubicon for those carrying jobs; or the Wrangler Rubicon for those more recreational moments – there’s a Jeep relevant to farmers’ needs.

The luxurious Jeep Grand Cherokee will answer every agriculture exec need, whether in Summit Reserve specification or ultimate seven-seater Overland guise. The Jeep range is as extensive as it is capable.

Alfa Romeo’s hybrid Tonale is the essence of innovation, embracing technology, sustainability, sportiness and style in an enticing package. The combination of petrol engine and electric motor provides the dynamics of a sportscar, the economy of a family SUV, and the knowledge that you’re contributing to sustainability.

And, of course, the ultimate farm accessory comes in the form of the double cab bakkie from PEUGEOT, the successful Landtrek. The Landtrek marks the return of the PEUGEOT brand to the pick-up market by offering double cab version with five seats, diesel, as well as a multitude of accessories to meet your professional and family activities. And the most spacious loadbin on the market.

There is something for everyone from Stellantis at NAMPO 2024. Get over to the stand and meet the team. It’s even pram- and wheelchair-friendly and promises a convenient and exciting place to rest, engage, or find that next mobility solution
