UD takes aim at heavy duty segment with new range
UD Trucks has launched the new generation Quon range, in a move to innovate the Japanese heavy-duty truck market.
The new generation Quon range aims to redefine the Japanese heavy-duty truck with high levels of drivability, safety and fuel efficiency.
UD's new Quon features a driveline that the brand says delivers a smooth, stress-free and comfortable ride, and the range is equipped with advanced safety features.
The comfortable interior lets the driver focus on driving, while UD has aimed to give the trucks a strong exterior prescence.
"The new generation Quon marks a new era for UD Trucks and further reinforces our position as a serious contender in the heavy-duty truck market," said Executive Vice President of Volvo Group and Chairman of UD Trucks Joachim Rosenberg.
"The new generation Quon not only complies with the latest emissions regulations, it also delivers significantly better performance across the board that will enable us to leapfrog into a stronger position within heavy-duty market in Australiaand New Zealand."
Acting Vice President of Sales for UD Trucks Australia Mark Strambi says the new generation Quon will redefine how Australia perceives Japanese heavy-duty trucks.
"The new Quon is a huge step for UD Trucks, but also for Japanese heavy-duty trucks in general," Mr Strambi said.
"The world-class technology available in the newgenerationQuon rangehas never been seen before on Japanese trucks in Australia," said Mark Strambi.
"UD Trucks is the first Japanese truck manufacturer to offer PPNLT compliant heavy-duty vehicles to the Australia market.
"Additionally, the new Quon gives us access to models not previously offered in Australia which will significantlyenhance our ability to offer our customers a comprehensive offering, backed up by the largest dealer network in Australiaand New Zealand."
Australian and New Zealand customers will get their first look at the new generation Quon at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show where UD Trucks Australia will announce further details about the local range.
