It also incorporates several safety features, such as lane departure warnings and blind-spot detection.

Distribution in Australia is managed by LTS Auto, a new importer and distributor, which has established a network of over 40 dealerships nationwide.

The T9 Ute will be available from April 2024, with LTS Auto overseeing its rollout.

Danny Lenartic, Deputy Managing Director of JAC Motors Australia, spoke on the vehicle's adaptability to Australian conditions and its competitive pricing, with the Haven model priced at $45,630 and the Oasis model at $42,662.
