JAC Motors introduces value-packed T8 Super-Lux

JAC Motors has recently introduced the latest addition to its line-up, the T8 2.0L CTI Super Lux double-cab. Sporting a refreshed 2023 facelift, the T8 Super Lux presents an even more rugged aesthetic and bold road presence, offering additional factory-fitted features, all covered by the manufacturer’s extensive warranty while maintaining its retail price parity with the current T8 Lux range.

According to JAC Motors Namibia’s Sales Executive, Ashley Daniels Sales Executive, the T8 retails locally for about N$482 000.

The global launch of the T8 in 2019 boosted the growth of the JAC Motors brand, further enhancing the company’s competitiveness in the international market. The T8 is manufactured in China, exported to over 40 left- and right-hand-drive countries, and valued by its owners for its versatile dual-lifestyle ability.

“Local customer research reveals that our T8 owners highly appreciate its exceptional fuel efficiency, comfort and many safety features for peace of mind motoring,” said Karl-Heinz Göbel, Chief Executive Officer of JAC Motors South Africa. “The new T8 Super Lux, with enhanced features, elevates our customer value proposition.”

Göbel further highlights that the new T8 Super Lux line-up includes 4x2 and 4x4 derivatives, all priced under N$500 000. 

Positioned between the affordable T6 double-cab workhorse line-up and the imminent T9 range-topper, the T8 offers a value-packed choice for double-cab buyers seeking a versatile bakkie that addresses both their lifestyle needs and work demands.

The eye-catching T8 sets itself apart with its captivating and modern design, stemming from JAC Motors’ international design centres in Italy and Japan. The 2023 facelift adds flair with a stylishly designed chrome-plated grille, Xenon headlamps with built-in LED Daytime Running Lights, and Fog Lamps integrated into the front bumper.

The rugged appeal continues with bold black wheel arches, while running boards and a style bar further enhance its commanding presence. For the 4x4 derivative, a customised black off-road style bar, rear step bumper, and side steps enhance the contemporary and adventurous look of the new T8 Super Lux.

The T8’s modern design seamlessly combines neat creases and sleek curves, complemented by attractive two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels with 265/60 R18 tyres. The ‘Double C’ LED tail-light design enhances visibility at night, adding a touch of distinction to its rear profile. Rear fog lamps complete the package.

“Responding to customer feedback, the T8 Super Lux derivatives come standard with factory-fitted electric sunroofs. This addition appeals to double-cab buyers with active lifestyles and a passion for adventurous exploration,” said Göbel.

Safety is deeply ingrained in JAC Motors’ DNA, shaping its philosophy and commitment to include a comprehensive array of active and passive safety features in the T8 Super Lux. Airbags, a Traction Control System (TCS), Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Hill-start Hold Control (HHC) exemplify the company’s dedication to safeguarding drivers and passengers.

Further enhancing safety, it boasts disc brakes in the front and rear, complemented by an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Override System (BOS), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

Extra safety features offered by the T8 Super Lux include an ISOFIX Child Restraint System with two baby seat mounting points and heated side mirrors for defrosting and enhancing rear visibility during cold winter mornings. A reverse camera, rear park distance sensors, remote keyless entry, and central locking with auto door locks enhance the safety package.
