Another feature of the Foton Blue Energy is a technology that detects the temperature and pressure changes to provide accurate measurements of the engine demand to maintain its normal operating temperature.

Both trucks look to play vital roles in ensuring the vaccines are brought fast, safe, and in optimal condition as they reach their intended recipients.
