JAC T8 pickup to be launched in Nepal

Shangrila Motors Nepal has announced that bookings are open now for the JAC T8– a double-cabin pickup powered by a 2.0L turbo-diesel engine–in Nepal, at an introductory price of Rs 56.99 lakh.

The new T8–based on JAC Motors’ eighth-generation international platform–is loaded with advanced safety, comfort, and convenience features.


The T8 has a striking appearance owing to its neat creases, design curves, and a stylish front fascia inspired by ancient Roman shields–which was designed by JAC’s Italian R&D institute.

The front of the T8 features a large hexagonal air-intake grille, stylishly designed Xenon headlamps with built-in DRLs, and fog lamps integrated into the front bumper. The pickup also comes with bold black wheel arches, attractive two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels with 265/60 R18 tyres, and side-step boards. Moreover, the unique ‘Double C’ LED tail-light design enhances the vehicle’s eye-catching appearance and makes it easily noticeable at night.


The T8 double-cab is powered by JAC Motors’ 2.0L turbo-diesel engine developed in cooperation with the German company FEV. The common-rail turbo-diesel engine–mated to a six-speed MT–generates 137 hp of power at 3600 rpm and a torque of 320 Nm between 1600 to 2600 rpm. Furthermore, the engine features an intercooler and Electrical Variable Geometry Turbocharger (EVGT).
