FAW goes farming
With the 2015 Nampo Harvest Day due to start next week on Tuesday, May 12 (it runs until Friday, May 15), many of the country’s top vehicle manufacturers are gearing up to wow the ever-enthusiastic visitors.
One of these is FAW Vehicle Manufacturers SA, which will display a range of highly affordable trucks that are perfectly suited to the agricultural sector. This is the 15th time that FAW will be exhibiting at Nampo.
The company says it has recognised the patronage and loyal support of its multitude of agricultural customers, who have remained committed to the brand throughout the 21 years that FAW has been present in South Africa.
The range of FAW trucks selected for the show has been chosen to display the brand’s suitability to the farming sector and its ability to provide optimum performance, while simultaneously keeping cost of ownership and running costs at an all-time low.
The company is also excited to showcase its new offering in the medium-commercial segment: the 8.140 FL.
Yusheng Zhang, CEO of FAW Vehicle Manufacturers SA, says: “For the introductory phase we will commence with a five-tonne payload drop-side body, which will provide the lowest cost per tonne on the market.
“The new range will carry all the hallmarks of FAW trucks – strength, reliability and easy operation, and, most importantly, will deliver on the promise of a ‘truck built for Africa, in Africa’.”
