IAA 2016: Foton launches new fuel efficient truck range
There’s a new player in the heavy truck market with the Chinese vehicle maker, Foton, teaming up with Daimler, Cummins and other major players to produce a new line of models.
Known as the Foton Super Truck, the new trucks were launched at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Germany and include the Auman Energy Super Truck (EST) and the Aumark S super medium-duty and light-duty.
All three were co-developed with members of the Super Truck Global Innovation Alliance as part of reaching a goal of a 30% reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions and a 70% increase in freight efficiency.
The Auman EST is primarily aimed at global logistics companies with long-haul freight needs, while the two Aumark S models are designed for urban use.
