"Many small trucks and bakkies have four wheels, an engine and are reasonably reliable. The Foton G7 pick-up range has all this and more: it's sexy, features future-proof styling and boasts a 3-ton towing capacity. Best-in-class pricing, robust performance and like-for-like specification in comparison with traditional brands, all the right ingredients for ‘fun and business’, at the right price. We have also selected only the top dealers in South Africa to deliver the ultimate Foton experience,” explains Marius Smal, CEO of Foton SA.

Foton South Africa will boast a network of 40 dealerships strategically located across the country.

Additionally, Foton’s state-of-the-art 10 000 m2 parts warehouse, managed by Mandarin Parts Distributors (Pty) Ltd, is dedicated to supporting aftersales service needs.
