Appendix: Key features of All-new Quon 

All-new Quon has multiple unique features that bring unprecedented levels of performance to customers in Hong Kong.

 

Smart Drivability: easier and smoother journeys to support drivers. 
The cabin has been redesigned with driver comfort as a priority. The new ESCOT-VI electronically controlled automated manual transmission adopts a simple, easy-to-use straight shift pattern, reinforcing All-new Quon’s operability while also enhancing performance in rough weather conditions. Disc brakes provide quick and smooth pedal response, and reliable braking on long descents,
promoting braking comfort that reduces driver fatigue and is also easy on the cargo. 

Smart Fuel Efficiency: cleaner yet more powerful, for improved performance and environmental friendliness. 
The fuel-efficient, powerful and clean 11-litre GH11 engine features a new fuel injection system that exceeds Japan’s Heavy Vehicle Fuel Economy Standards by 5%. To further support fuel-efficient driving, ESCOT-VI 12-speed automated manual transmission with functions such as Acceleration Limiter and Soft Cruise Control, help suppress fluctuations in fuel consumption, which in turn enhance fuel economy.

Smart Safety: safer and more reliable for the driver, cargo and surroundings.
The advanced Electronic Braking System (EBS) consists of features that optimize braking performance and extend tire life. It includes the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) that prevents the wheels from locking, even under heavy braking on slippery roads. This allows the driver to brake and steer at the same time to avoid an accident. In addition, the Anti- Slip Regulation system (ASR) distributes drive force to the wheel with the best grip, reducing the risk of spinning on a slippery surface. In combination with passive safety features, these advanced safety systems aim to improve safety of drivers and other road users.

  
 

Smart Productivity: more payload and greater efficiency for increased profitability.
All-new Quon is equipped with disc brakes and high tensile steel plates for the main frame to reduce the vehicle weight for improved payload. The chassis design also emphasises body mounting efficiency to provide a greater range of options.

Smart Uptime: stay on the road to maximize revenue generating time

The All-new Quon’s disc brakes do not require expanders, reducing the number of parts that need to be regularly replaced. High-quality synthetic oils that are highly heat-resistant and do not easily degrade extend replacement intervals and uptime. 

 
Additionally, UD Extra Mile Support such as UD Genuine Parts and Service, 24-hour UD Road Support, UD Mobile Workshop, UD Service Agreements, UD Service Planning and UD Telematics Services utilizing the latest in connectivity aim to maximize uptime.
