About Foton

The world’s largest manufacturer of reliable and affordable commercial vehicles, Foton Motors, continuously leads the way for advances in global automotive technology.

Foton Motors was established in Beijing, China, in 1996 and was listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange two years later. After being recognised as China’s leading light-duty truck manufacturer, Foton went on to establish its first line of passenger vehicles in 2006.

Foton has collaborated with Cummins, one of the most advanced diesel engine manufacturers in the world, for quality engine production in all their vehicles. This makes Foton vehicles – and their engines – unsurpassed in reliability, durability and power.

In 2009, Foton also partnered with Germany’s Daimler AG to produce medium and heavy-duty trucks as well as to pioneer new automotive technology and services. The Foton-Daimler partnership is one of the driving forces behind the success of Foton Auman trucks globally.

Foton vehicles are exported to more than 125 countries worldwide. Production lines have been established in five countries around the world, with 10 additional lines on the way and all vehicles are certified by the international ISO9001 Quality System. Foton is all about passion through automotive innovation – quality vehicles that are both tough and luxurious.
