The Nissan E20 was introduced in 1973 and today carries a strong sense of nostalgia, remembered as one of the most legendary products of its time. The Nissan E20 was the great symbol of the Golden City on the move. From Noord Street to Meadowlands, from Isando to Mamelodi, fleets of these tough and reliable vehicles streamed the highways and bi-ways and even went as far as the most inhospitable rural areas. The same was true in Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and other high density centres. The Nissan E20 had over several years established itself as the Chief Taxi of South Africa.
