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.
