Hyundai rolls out new trucks, buses in Bahrain
Manama, June 27, 2012
First Motors, the official distributors of Hyundai in Bahrain, recently introduced several new models from the Korean automaker, including medium and heavy duty trucks and buses, to its commercial vehicle range.
“Hyundai has been the front runner in meeting demands and expanding its marketing network by providing an array of solutions for a number of construction and transportation needs,” said Raed Mu’ti, general manager of First Motors.
“The arrival of Hyundai’s new medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles and buses with their durability, economic efficiency and performance, is expected to widely increase our sales force in Bahrain,” he added.
The new Hyundai HD 120 is a lightweight commercial vehicle with a cab over engine configuration designed for medium duty activities. The truck features a standard full floating cab suspension for a more comfortable ride and has a roomy and spacious cabin designed with practicality in mind.
Hyundai has also introduced the new HD 450 that has been designed to offer outstanding performance through low fuel consumption. The HD 450 features a larger capacity fuel tank that provides better convenience for long-distance transport needs.
“The introduction of the new Hyundai Universe Bus is all set to change the way people travel as it provides the right solution and amenities designed for long distance trips. These busses are designed to assist tourism agencies in catering to long road journeys thereby promoting tourism,” said Mu’ti.
The Hyundai Universe Limousine buses are an upscale transport solution for private corporates and VIPs, he added.
Powered by Hyundai’s Powertec engine, the new Universe bus has received a complete makeover with additional fittings such as a wheelchair fixing device and lift controller. The interiors of the bus feature ultimate luxury and comfort with comfortable seating, LED lighting and an in-built lavatory.
“Hyundai commercial vehicles and busses are customer friendly, very economical, and have proved to be an ideal choice for businesses seeking cost-effective solutions,” said Mu’ti.
Since their introduction in Korea in 1998, Hyundai’s commercial range of heavy duty-trucks and buses have been the best-selling trucks in their home country, and are now sold in more than 100 nations, receiving high reviews for their quality and reliability, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
