Toyota has updated its Quantum and Hiace Ses’fikile people-movers in South Africa. See the changes below.
Taxis transport millions of South Africans to and from work every day and the taxi industry forms the backbone of public transport in South Africa. The Hiace Ses’fikile and Quantum models are a common sight on our roads and they are locally produced at Toyota’s Prospecton facility in Durban.
With the Covid-19 pandemic gripping the country, Toyota SA has fitted a driver guard inside the Hiace Ses’fikile to improve safety for both the driver and passengers. Hiace Ses’fikile’s produced from October 2020 are fitted with this guard.
Moving onto the changes for the Quantum range, the Quantum GL bus (11- and 14 seater) gains 16-inch alloy wheels replacing the previous steel wheels. An upgraded rear-view mirror with an auto-dimming function and reverse camera display is now also offered and is also available for the Quantum Panel Van and Crew Cab derivatives.
Toyota has also discontinued non-air-conditioned derivatives from the Panel Van and Crew Cab ranges and the rear air-conditioned Crew Crab derivative has also now been discontinued.
