FOTON Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI) ended 2020 with a prominent achievement, joining the elite ranks of the country’s Top 10 best selling automotive brands—and the country’s only Chinese brand in the list. Bucking the multiple challenges brought about by the pandemic and through judicious switching of business and marketing strategies, FOTON PH registered a total 2,456 total units sold in just 12 months, as reported by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI).
Top on its bestselling vehicle list are the compact yet versatile Gratour models, which comprise 15.88% of the brand’s total sales. While sales in the 2nd quarter last year were affected by the effects of the community quarantine, FOTON PH started to reclaim market sales in the 3rd quarter as the demand for commercial vehicles upturned to address the mobility requirements for relief and public service operations of different regions.
Among the brand’s Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) sales, the FOTON TransVan claims the top spot with 19.5% contribution on the total LCV Category sales, earning it the distinction as the brand’s best selling van for 2020.
With a substantial percentage of the industry’s total sales focused on commercial vehicle trucks, the Tornado Series contributed to 44.22% of truck sales, garnering the title for the third best selling light-duty truck brand in the country for the third consecutive year. The Tornado Series features multi-functional capabilities combined with a selection of high-strength customizable bodies such as Ref-Van, MPV, F-Van, Dropside, and Crane Trucks, making it a perfect mobility partner for various transportation, delivery, and hauling services.
“We are honored to be among the Top 10 best selling automotive brands in the country. We are indebted to our loyal customers and partners that supported us since the beginning. Rest assured that we will always stay committed to bring the best mobility quality that will Empower Your Business,” says FMPI President Rommel Sytin.
As the company marks its 15th year in the Philippine automotive industry, it continues to pursue first-rate services by innovating and adapting more convenient features by recently launching its Mobile App, a user-friendly website, and a digital showroom. To give back to the people’s unrelenting trust, FOTON will bring more campaigns, programs, and after-sales services that are all in line with its mission to provide utmost service and convenience to Filipinos.
