UD Trucks has started sales of its flagship heavy duty truck, New Quon in Australia. UD Trucks is the first Japanese truck brand to launch a heavy duty model that meets the latest emission regulations. By widening the choice of models available to customers, UD Trucks aims to expand its sales in the Australian market.
Since entering the market in 1973, UD Trucks has won the strong support of customers for the high reliability of its trucks. UD Trucks is especially in demand for trucking between urban centers, within cities, and in municipalities’ civil engineering works. Significantly in the tractor segment, the 6 x 4 tractor continues to hold the top share among Japanese brands. With the all-new Quon, in addition to extending its line-up with a 6 x 2 cargo to meet local needs, UD Trucks has mounted an improved 460ps GH 11 engine on its already high reputation tractor. The new Quon contributes to customers’ business by combining the five essential areas that distinguish UD Trucks — drivability, fuel efficiency, safety, productivity and uptime.
The all-new Quon will be sold through Volvo Group Australia’s dealership and its partners, which has 39 sales and service locations throughout the country. Extensive and high quality customer service will also be provided through the dealership. With the best of three worlds, which is the strong dealer network, UD’s Japanese heritage of manufacturing quality and access to the Volvo Group's latest technologies, sales activities for the Quon will now be further expanded to large fleet companies.
