The new workhorse in JAC’s stable will join its siblings, the X200 2.8L TDI single-cab 1.5-tonne and double-cab 1.3-tonne bakkies, competing with one-tonne rivals in the growing LCV forward-cab market.

JAC promises that the new X100 will outperform its direct forward-cab competitor in the performance category, and with a payload of 1 040kg to boot. Its fuel-efficient Euro 4, 1 240 cc 4-cylinder petrol engine produces 65kW and 115Nm, and fuel consumption of 7.1 litres/100km (combined cycle). A five-speed manual transmission transfers power to the rear wheels.

“The X100 bakkie fills an important gap in the delivery market where we currently aren't competing. Its excellent fuel consumption, big load capacity, and low operating cost will save transport operators lots of money,” said Karl-Heinz Göbel, Chief Executive Officer of JAC Motors South Africa. “The X100 will be valuable for entrepreneurs as it will provide a cost-effective transport solution.”

The X100's retail price will be announced closer to its planned introduction date in the second quarter of this year. It will be available in drop-side configuration and offers power-steering, air-conditioning and electric windows as standard fitments. It features a three-year/100 000km warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance.
