All-New Foton Aumark S-Series Light Truck Launched
Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Foton trucks in Malaysia, has officially launched the all-new Foton Aumark S Series light-duty truck for the Malaysian market.
The price for Aumark S model BJ1078 is RM101,000 and for BJ1088 is RM108,000. The trucks come with a warranty period of five years or 200,000 km whichever comes first.
In conjunction with the launch, Angka-Tan Motor will be giving an early bird promotion discount of RM5,000 for the first 100 units.
Developed under the Foton Super Truck program, the Aumark S Series is powered by the latest generation Cummins ISF 3.8-litre turbocharged diesel engine capable of producing 154 hp and 500Nm of torque.
Paired with the Cummins engine is the 6-speed manual transmission by ZF, which has smooth shifting and high transmission efficiency. The light-weight aluminum alloy casing and optimized gear ratio also effectively reduce fuel consumption, while the optimized turbinate gear design can effectively reduce noise.
The truck’s active safety features include the braking system, lighting, driving view and more. Its high-performance braking system is generated by the main braking valve which adopted WABCO’s brake control solutions for enhanced safety and braking efficiency levels, even in extreme conditions.
The Foton Aumark S is also equipped with electric adjustable headlight which has a low beam for the lens structure, with luminous intensity of the single high beam at 50,000 candela or 25 times more that the brightness of daytime sunlight.
An additional feature that further maximizes safety is the intelligent reversing radar with four sensors for a comprehensive detection of any obstacle within 1.8 meters of the rear of the Foton Aumark S when the driver is reversing.
Built with European safety standards through, the Aumark S series is designed and equipped with both active and passive safety features that have been tested in full compliance with ECE’s automotive safety regulations.
The all-new Foton Aumark S series also boasts updated chassis design that is built with high strength steel, two-piece driveshaft and leaf springs which are more stable and more load-bearing.
Built based on the European standards for vehicle body structure, the cab is stamped and formed, where more than 80% of the cab is welded with high precision by double-sided galvanized sheet for high strength against frontal impact and top crushing. The cab doors and frames have hinge reinforcement plate and high-strength tensile for maximum protection against side impacts.
Danny Ng, Senior General Manager, Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd shared, “Safety stands as a highly important hallmark of the all-new Foton Aumark S series light-duty super truck. The truck is built with the most stringent manufacturing processes and had undergone and passed all the required crash tests that were necessary to attain the ECE R29 global regulatory standards.”
“The 1.6 million km road test through different road, weather and altitude conditions had demonstrated the technological breakthrough in intelligent control, safety, fuel saving and smooth driving experience in the Foton Aumark S series,” he added.
“Angka-Tan Motor will be offering two models of the Aumark S, which are BJ1078 7.5T and BJ1088 7.5T and 9T vehicles. Both models offer improved intelligence with multi-function display for easy operation and handling, ergonomically designed and spacious cab space for extra comfort, and easy refit to suit various logistical needs,” said Danny Ng.
“Whether it is for customers who are logistics experts demanding intelligent high-efficiency arrival or cold chain experts requiring on-time arrival or urban delivery experts looking for agility and smooth arrival, the all-new Foton Aumark S series is the ultimate light-duty super truck for business safety, efficiency and productivity,” he added.
