Daehan pickups - Kolao Group (Laos)
5 Attachment(s)
Kolao Group (Kolao Developing Co.) is an automobile trader, distributor, and assembler, and reportedly the largest private enterprise in Lao PDR. It was founded by a Korean-origin entrepreneur in 1997. The group operates auto franchises in several countries in the Indochina region, makes motorcycles in Laos and S. Korea, and trucks in Laos and Vietnam.

The Kolao Group launched trucks under its new "Daehan" brand in 2013. From 2014, the group has introduced Chinese-sourced pickups as well. As of now, four pickups are offered: Extreme, Prime, Maestro, and Megatron, rebadged versions of familiar models from Jinbei, BAW, and Zhongxing.

Daehan Optimus (Laos)
3 Attachment(s)
Kolao Group recently launched its own version of the T340, dubbed "Optimus", under the Daehan brand in Laos. The local model sports a new grille which differentiates it from the Chinese (FAW) version. The country was also the first export destination for the T340 in early 2017, shortly after production started in China.

Daehan Bravo:

In Laos, Kolao has very recently launched yet another new pickup called Bravo. Good photographs are not available at present.

The vehicle is assembled from parts/panels possibly imported from China. I have not been able to identify the source, since a number of Chinese makes (e.g. FAC, FAW, Projen, BAIC, Jopob) have similar pickups in their model program, either currently produced or planned. Thailand too might be an alternative source.
