Leading the EV truck sales, the T5 EV Tipper continues Foton’s momentum. And it’s not just about tipping – this versatile model adapts for various light-duty applications.

Rapid charging takes just 1.5 hours, or go for a full battery recharge in 7.2 hours. With a solid 180km range, safety is paramount, featuring pedestrian warnings, stability support, airbags, and more.

Crafted with an Australian-made steel tipper body, the Foton T5 EV can be in your hands swiftly via Foton Mobility Distribution’s widespread dealership network.

“While Foton Mobility Distribution’s EV truck offering is new to Australia, it comes with impressive credentials from markets around the globe.

In the short time that we have been on sale here in Australia, we have claimed leadership in the pure-EV truck sales race, and with the T5 EV Tipper, we are looking to continue that growth.”

Bill Gillespie, Foton Mobility Distribution’s General Manager

Last year, Foton dominated the global new energy commercial vehicle market, producing 22,000+ units. Australia’s strong and rapidly emerging EV scene seems the perfect next step for the EV Tipper.

Backed by a nationwide dealer network, Foton offers a 5-year/200,000km vehicle warranty and an 8-year/300,000km battery warranty. Plus, NTI Truck Assist provides 24/7 roadside support.

Foton’s T5 EV Tipper is a true game-changer, combining electric innovation with real-world might. The road to a sustainable transport future may have just gotten shorter.
