Foton Nepal to launch a new light-duty vehicle in August | To introduce electric van models

MAW Vriddhi Commercial Vehicle Pvt. Ltd, the official distributor of Foton vehicles in Nepal, is set to launch a new light-duty vehicle–the Aumark–in August. The Aumark will be the company’s second model to launch in August, in addition to the Tunland DC’s E+ variant. The new vehicle is powered by a 2.8L diesel engine and will be launched in a single variant: the TX.

Furthermore, MAW Vridhhi’s recent press release states that they are also readying to launch electric cargo and passenger vehicles here. According to the company, Nepali automobile enthusiasts are gradually preferring electric vehicles, as they don’t emit harmful gases and cost less to operate than the diesel ones. Therefore, with the aim of making space for commercial EVs, the distributors will introduce Foton Motors’ cargo and passenger vans in Nepal. 

Design and features

The Aumark TX gets a boxy front compartment, and the deck at the back–which can be opened from three sides–is comparatively longer than the regular light-duty vehicles. The vehicle’s front fascia gets big ramp headlights and a widescreen.

For convenience, the three-seater truck comes with features such as a semi-digital instrument cluster, adjustable power steering wheel, in-built audio devices (AM/FM radio, aux, and MP3), two speakers, and a heater, among others.

Engine and specifications

The Aumark TX is powered by the 2.8L diesel engine which generates 101 hp of power and a torque of 225 Nm. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. 

The two-wheel drive vehicle comes with a 35% gradeability and it has a payload capacity of up to 4130 kg. The truck’s braking duties are handled by hydraulic brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear.
