Today, they've announced a new heavy duty truck called the Quester, which has been tailored for the growth markets of Asia Pacific and other regions. It can be tailored to a number of applications, from be a semi cargo puller to a rigid body tanker. It provides a platform for a wide range of applications including mining, construction, distribution and long-haul transportation.

Production will start in the third quarter of 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. Further details should be announced at a later time.

“UD Trucks, with a proud and long-standing tradition of developing high quality trucks for the Japanese market, has exported trucks to markets across Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle-East for many decades. However, we have never developed products for customers outside Japan. With Quester, we are entering a new era by introducing an all-new truck range, specifically designed for growth markets”, says Joachim Rosenberg, Executive Vice President, Group Trucks Sales & Marketing and JVs, APAC.
