    Default MediaRelease: JAC Motors unveils game-changing T9 at Shanghai Automotive Show

    JAC Motors has taken the double-cab market by storm with the launch of its ground-breaking T9 double-cab range at the prestigious Shanghai Automotive Show. The T9 line-up comprises a range of efficient ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powerplants, as well as BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) and PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) derivatives, all boasting stylish design, cutting-edge technology, advanced features and outstanding performance. JAC Motors proudly calls the T9 its "high-end passenger" double-cab, setting a new standard for the market.

    JAC Motors South Africa earlier announced plans to introduce the T9 line-up as the top-of-the-range offering in the T-Series, featuring the full range of powerplants in 4×4 and 4×2 options, as well as various specification levels. The luxurious T9 will lead the company's quest into the competitive double-cab lifestyle market.

    "We are thrilled to introduce the exciting new T9 as the range-topper of our T-Series bakkies. The T9 will lead our charge in the double-cab market, with our versatile T8 and economical T6 line-ups focusing on specific target markets within this market segment," says Karl-Heinz Göbel, CEO of JAC Motors South Africa.

    The new T9 is the most advanced pick-up ever developed by JAC Motors in its 55-year history of building light commercial vehicles. It is based on the company's third-generation international platform, which provides increased stability, comfort and safety. The T9 boasts 5-star safety ratings from five different global safety rating agencies, making it a top contender for buyers seeking the best safety standards.

    Designed for both left- and right-hand drive markets, the T9 is manufactured in state-of-the-art production facilities in China. The T9 diesel and petrol turbocharged derivatives will be introduced in South Africa and Australia in the second semester of 2023. The BEV and PHEV 4×4 derivatives will follow in 2024, and the first quarter of 2025 will see the addition of a 2.5L turbo-diesel derivative.

    "South Africa was the first right-hand drive market for JAC Motors. With the brand also making inroads in the Australian market, we are fortunate to get the latest products soon after the global launches," says Göbel.

    The T9's bold design results in a wheelbase measuring 3 110 mm, a ride height of 210 mm and a payload of 1 000 kg. Its multi-link rear suspension offers improved ride quality and stability, while the large body design, measuring 5 330 mm (L) x 1 965 mm (W) x 1 920 mm (H), ensures a spacious and comfortable cab. Upmarket features such as genuine high-grade leather, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system provide a luxurious driving experience for both driver and passengers.

    The T9 offers a host of active- and passive safety features, including autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring, a 360˚ surround-view camera, and ISOFIX child seat anchors. It also features seven airbags, including a front centre airbag, ensuring the highest level of safety for occupants.

    The T9 derivatives to be introduced in South Arica this year feature highly-efficient diesel and petrol turbocharged engines. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine produces 125 kW and 410 Nm, and the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine produces 168 kW and 380 Nm. A ZF eight-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels. The 4×4 derivatives offer electronic part-time 4WD with low range and an electronic diff-lock. The T9 supports a towing mass of 3 500 kg (braked).

    The T9 BEV 4×4 is powered by an 88 kWh LFP battery pack, allowing for a reach of over 400 kilometres per charge. The PHEV 4×4 derivative features the T9's 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine and a 26.8 kWh LFP battery pack, resulting in a 30 km/litre fuel consumption.

    "The new T9 is a welcome addition to the T-Series line-up, offering great value for money. We expect the T9, with its powerful and efficient powerplants, large body design and innovative technology, to be an extremely attractive alternative at a more affordable price point," concludes Göbel.

    The retail prices of the new T9 derivatives will be announced closer to its planned introduction date in the second semester of this year. The T9 features a five-year/100 000 km warranty, a five-year/100 000 km service plan and 24-hour roadside assistance

    1. Game Changer
    2. Disruptor

    The two most overused phrases by any company or brand talking about themselves and/or their latest not a game changer or disruptor product. I've read through the release, twice. What exactly is the game changing part of this and which part of the game is it going to change?

    During the week I have seen the T9 on 3 occasions. I like it. The grill, although huge, looks quite imposing.
