FOTON Philippines—one of the premier commercial brand vehicle in the country, staged an annual show last October 25-29 that showcased the company’s latest line of passenger vehicles, light & heavy duty trucks. I know, it’s a totally different atmosphere from the events I usually attend but I had a lot of fun! I took tons of photos to share with you guys!
Foton had the 4,000 square meter lot of World Trade Center for their outdoor exhibit. Felt like I was in a Transformers movie! Ha!
The indoor showcase at Hall A featured Foton’s line of passenger and commercial vehicles, heavy equipment and trucks.
Locally, Foton Philippines is the most aggressive and successful Chinese automotive brand. It has been attracting a growing number of government fleet accounts that includes police and ambulance vehicles.
In China alone, Foton has a distribution and service network of over 2,700 dealers and 4,400 service centers and globally has more than 100 distributors and 400 service centers in over 100 countries. Wow!
Foton’s Big Show 2013 had various incentive programs like on-the-spot tradeshow discounts, special trade-in deals and other freebies.
Here’s just 1 of Foton’s 6 Tornado Van series. Looks familiar to you? I see this vehicle everywhere!
So yeah, this happened. Haha I had too much fun at the event!
Foton Philippines also had 8 major banks during the show to offer on-site easy financing and low interest installment deals.
From heavy-duty trucks and commercial vehicles, let me show you some of Foton’s awesome line of passenger vehicles! I want this 4×4!
Foton is headquartered in Beijing and distributed in Germany, Japan, Taiwan and The Philippines!
Other activities include vehicle test-drives and seminars that cover technical training, PMS (preventive maintenance service) tips, road safety, responsible driving and UV Express franchise application tips.
Foton also unveiled its newest model van—The View Traveller!
The Foton Big Show 2013 kicked off with a performance by the NU (National University) Pep Squad! This was their winning routine at this year’s UAAP Cheerdance Competition!
Guest speaker Sen. Nancy Binay shared her insights about the brand.
The star of the show—The Dancing Wheel Loader! Haha! Foton flew in highly skilled heavy equipment drivers to perform in this specially choreographed dance number using the wheel loader truck! Check out the video I took here.
Of course I wouldn’t leave the event without test-driving Foton’s vehicles! I seriously wanted to test-drive the firetruck but I don’t have the license for it :( Boooo.
I chose to test-drive the new Foton View Traveller van! I want this for my family! It’s a 15-seater van which is perfect because there’s 12 of us in the family (ang dami ba namin) haha! Other standard features include halogen headlamps with irradiation height adjustment, fog lamps, power windows, ABS and EBD, individual three-point seat belts, dual front airbags and central locking system.
Check out how spacious the Foton View Traveller is!
