Mitsubishi Fuso showcases the E-Canter alongside E-FUSO Vision ONE
Mitsubishi Fuso strengthened the commitment of its FUSO brand for alternative drivetrains by announcing it will electrify its complete range of trucks and buses in upcoming years.
At the Tokyo Motor Show, MFTBC launched its new product brand E-FUSO–being the first OEM to launch a brand dedicated to electric mobility of trucks and buses. As proof, MFTBC showcased a concept all-electric heavy-duty truck with a range of up to 350 kilometers. The truck–named E-FUSO Vision One – marks the top end of the electrification process the company will move towards in upcoming years.
In addition to the E-FUSO Vision One, Mitsubishi Fuso also showcased its E-Canter, the first series-produced all-electric light-duty truck, which was recently launched in New York City. The E-Canter has a GVW of 7.5 tons and a range of 100-120 km on a single charge. The first small series of the E-Canter has been handed over to customers including: the convenience-store giant, Seven-Eleven, and Japan’s largest delivery logistics provider Yamato. And in the United States, to United Parcel Service (UPS), and several NGOs, including Habitat for Humanity, Wildlife Conservation Society, and The New York Botanical Garden, who have also purchased the E-Canter. It is, therefore, in operation in two of the world’s largest megacities, New York City and Tokyo, demonstrating FUSO’s concrete steps towards reducing air and noise pollution in urban areas, and its vision to help shape sustainable urban environments.
