BACKED by underskin component brands like Cummins, Getrag and Bosch, Chinese brand Foton has arrived at the Sunshine Coast.

The all-new Foton Tunland dual cab ute arrived at 120 Sugar Road, Maroochydore this week - a dealership site operated by Pacific Motor Group.

Pacific Motor Group dealer principal Craig McPherson said he was pleased to be among the first dealers in Foton's national dealership network.

"We're among the first dealers in Australia to be working with the world's largest commercial vehicle manufacturer - a business opportunity that doesn't come along every day," Mr McPherson said.

Australian distributor for Foton light commercial and passenger vehicles FAA Automotive Australia expects to have 12 Foton dealerships established across Australia by the end of 2012.

This includes two dealerships in Brisbane and one each in Maroochydore, Townsville and Mackay.

Further south, dealerships in Sydney, Canberra, Wagga Wagga and Melbourne will also be established.

Pacific Foton in Maroochydore is the third Foton dealership in Queensland to receive its first allocation of vehicles.
