Foton Tunland utes arrive early

"The vehicles will arrive on Australian soil in November".

Apparently several Tunlands have arrived to fly the flag for the Chinese-built dual cab utes, ahead of a projected Australian launch later this year. The demo Tunlands are the four-wheel drive, luxury dual cab, manual transmission versions.

Anyone chasing a sneak peek and drive of the forthcoming FotonTunland utes should drop into Motorworld Queensland up in Brisbane. Or, if headed way west, at Perth Motorsport in Perth. Foton dealerships in Victoria, Adelaide and on the Sunshine Coast also are expected to soon have Tunlands available for test drives.

While the two and four-wheel drive utes were expected in local showrooms earlier this year, a final-quarter launch now has been confirmed by FAA Automotive sales director Rod James on the Gold Coast. 

"Production of the first shipment of production-line Tunlands is now under way and all going to plan, the vehicles will arrive on Australian soil in November," Mr James said.
