UD Trucks’ the new Quon and the Croner designed for the emerging markets earned the 2017 Good Design Awards.
Both models were highly evaluated for their designs that have UD Trucks’ family look and support functions that meet the needs of our customers in markets where they are sold. This time UD Trucks won its 8th and 9th Good Design Award in total following its 7th winning in 2013 for the Quester.
“The new Quon’s dignified exterior embodies the concept of “a truck with leading edge innovations putting people first” and its high-quality cabin space is equipped with renewed Human Machine Interface. The Croner was intended to give impression of agile and reliable medium duty truck range as a truck contributing to the customers’ business in the emerging markets. The target markets for each model range are different, but we are really proud of their designs that precisely capture the needs of the customers and that is appropriate for a range in UD Trucks family,” said Toshio Shiratori, Complete Vehicle Product Design Director, UD Trucks Technology responsible for the design of both the new Quon and the Croner.
