Foton Consolidates in New Zealand

Foton Consolidates in New Zealand

The Foton Motor Company, China’s largest and most successful manufacturer of commercial vehicles, has rationalised its representation in the New Zealand market.

Ateco Automotive NZ has on May 1 taken over the importation and distribution of the Foton Tunland range of utility vehicles in addition to its pre-existing position with Foton light trucks.

Ateco will move quickly to expand its Foton dealer network in line with sales expectations, and to improve back up and service nationally.

Foton was founded in 1996 and has since produced well over five million vehicles. The company has been the number one-ranked commercial vehicle manufacturer in China for almost a decade and now ranks as the largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles in the world.

Foton works closely with a host of additional international partners, including some of the best-known component suppliers in the world such as ZF, Bosch and Continental.

The Foton Trucks range currently comprises two cab widths, two engines, three wheelbases and GVMs ranging from 4.5 to 8.5 tonnes (spec sheets available on request). At the heart of Foton’s light trucks are the leading-edge technology Cummins ISF3.8L and ISF2.8L engines.

All Foton trucks are covered by a three year 160,000km warranty, three years and 100,000km on Foton Tunlands and, in the unlikely event of problem, 24 hour a day seven days a week roadside assistance for all Foton vehicles.
