Celebrating Patrol’s 70th Anniversary, over 885 participants joined the Nissan competition for a chance to win a brand-new Patrol
Dubai, UAE (14 November 2021) – Nissan is set to reward loyal customers in the Middle East with three brand-new Patrol vehicles as part of the brand’s regional competition launched earlier this year to celebrate the iconic Patrol’s 70th anniversary. Highlighting customers’ admiration for the SUV and its deeply rooted heritage in the region, the first phase of Nissan’s 70th Anniversary Patrol competition is nearing the final stages and is now open for public voting until 25 November 2021.
Sharing images and inspiring stories to participate on a dedicated microsite, over 885 loyal fans and Patrol owners took part in the competition since its launch in early September. Building on the excitement, Nissan is calling on fans from across the region to vote for their favorite Patrol stories submitted by Patrol owners. Fans of the iconic Patrol from across the region can visit the website (https://nissan.arabgt.com/top-9-stories/) and vote for their favorite Patrol stories to pick the lucky winners who will drive home a brand-new Patrol.
Run in collaboration with ArabGT.com – the largest online automotive network in the Arab world, the Nissan Patrol 70th Anniversary competition is powered by Nissan Middle East and supported by Nissan partners, including Al Masaood Automobiles in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain and Arabian Automobiles Company in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
Sharing his comments, Abdulilah Wazni, Director of Marketing & Product at Nissan Middle East, said: “We have received an overwhelming response from this competition, proving the strong relationship our customers have with their Patrols. By bringing these stories forward, we can celebrate an icon and the wonderful memories that our customers have created with this legendary SUV that has become an integral part of their lifestyle and the region. For this, we want to reward customers with the opportunity to continue making fond memories and win a brand-new Patrol.”
A jury panel comprising of judges from Nissan Middle East and Nissan local partners, along with members of ArabGT, collectively shortlisted the most inspiring Patrol stories and cars from all markets. Shortlisted participants were then requested to take their Patrol for a technical inspection to authorized Nissan service centers in their respective market for a cosmetic and mechanical inspection, following which a total of nine participants (Three from each market) have been nominated to go head-to-head in a public vote.
