Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), the largest automotive and mobility company in the country, has brought back one of its most famous models, the Toyota Lite Ace, as a Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV). This vehicle will be a reliable business partner for Filipino business owners and entrepreneurs.
Today, the All-New Toyota Lite Ace was officially shown off for the first time at Farmers Plaza in Araneta City, Quezon City. Farmers Plaza is one of the busiest commercial centers and marketplaces in the country, where many businesses thrive.
“With the introduction of the All-New Lite Ace, we are responding to the long-time request of our customers for Toyota to introduce a light commercial vehicle,” TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto told spectators at the unveiling event. “We are confident that the All-New Lite Ace is a game-changer, not just in uplifting the auto industry, but more importantly in improving the way homegrown businesses move people and goods.”
TMP is proud of how far its nationwide network of 72 dealerships reaches to bring the All-New Lite Ace to more businesses in different industries across the country, especially in areas where efficient transportation is important for getting goods and services to customers on time.
TMP’s entry into this new category is also helped by the QDR (Quality, Durability, and Reliability) of Toyota products, which fits the needs of MSMEs that want to get the most out of every investment they make. This also means that the vehicle will be down for less time, which keeps a business going and prevents time and money losses or extra costs for repairs. By doing this, we’re making sure that the All-New Lite Ace is an easy-to-get vehicle, making it easier for MSMEs to buy.
Toyota Lite Ace Variants
The All-New Lite Ace is currently available in two styles: the Pickup, which has an open bed for quick and easy loading, and the Panel Van, which has a sliding door to keep cargo more secure. Both the Pickup and the Panel Van are heavy-duty and have a large capacity, making them great for moving heavy loads.
The Panel Van is great for businesses like shipping packages for e-commerce, and the Dropside Pickup can be used for agricultural and industrial needs. TMP will keep adding to its lineup. By September 2022, the Aluminum Van, which is good for moving dry goods, and the Utility Van, which is good for moving people, will be available.
The 1.5L gasoline engine and 5-speed manual transmission give the All-New Lite Ace its power. It also has useful convenience features like an air conditioning system and electric power steering. The All-New Lite Ace is not only a reliable partner when it comes to efficiency, but it also cares about the safety of its users. The Panel Van has SRS Airbags, Anti-lock Brake System, and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).
