Is it Quon from UD trucks?. Iam only doubtful about the headlamps on bumper.

My next guess is whether it is a Foton

Finally! I was wondering what Eicher was up to.

How do you know its an Eicher? It is well masked but the grill design doesn't immediately scream Eicher.

Oh, that makes sense .

But just a question - why go through the masking process and have it all blown way with this ? Doesn't this mean one thing only - intentional misleading ?

Also it looks very Chinese so hence my doubt.

Then it would be Volvo-UD based truck might be Quon or Condor. But the headlamp profile does not look like UD trucks.

Most likely this could be Foton Auman.

With reference to the image.
The red marks are showing cues of UD Quon especially the one on the quarter panel.
The Blue shows something very volvo type of headlamp profile.
The Yellow mark shows very different type of part split which i feel is seen in iveco trucks.
As per the mud flaps if its eicher then i feel it shoud be Volvo-UD based cab.

This might be one of the new products being designed at Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles. Its a regular truck, doesnt seem to be a tractor like the Foton Auman posted above.
