The launch for the new Hyundai EX9 truck was on Thursday held at Carnivore restaurant in Nairobi. It was put together by DT Dobie, the sole distributor for Hyundai in Kenya. Mighty was made to meet the growing demand for nine tonne trucks. The truck runs on diesel and has a powerful engine. The steel used to make it is of good quality and it comes with a three year and 100,000-kilometer warranty.
The vehicles have been assembled at KVM in Thika for the past seven years which goes a long way to creating many jobs locally. All this being part of the government’s big four agenda. Retailing at Ksh 4.25 million, DT Dobie further helps its clientele by connecting them to banks for financial assistance.
Why might you need this truck you might ask? Well for one, it is great for FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) businesses. Therefore, it can get your produce from the farm to your market fast. Got a bakery? Your raw materials will get to you on time and your clients will always enjoy fresh bread and treats. You can go crazy with the amount of goods you can move with this truck.
Driver comfort is considered unlike most trucks with comfortable seating and a stylish yet functional interior. Different bodies can be fitted on the back of the truck. That is thanks to its extra-long wheelbase. Meaning the cab can be fitted with refrigerated cargoes, flatbeds and dump and tank trunks. Servicing can be done at any of the many state of the art DT dobie workshops that stock genuine spare parts. Branches are located in Lusaka road in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru and Kisumu. The workshops not only service but sell the trucks.
