World premiere for the Fuso Canter Euro 5


Back in May, Japan-based Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) announced that it would implement extensive measures and initiatives for realigning its business operations and reducing the attendant costs. Among these measures for realigning its operations and strengthening the company’s international activities, the market launch and product positioning of the Fuso Canter truck in Europe will play a crucial role. “We have expanded the international business, modernized our business system, and fully integrated Fuso into Daimler Trucks in response to the transforming global commercial vehicle market,” says Andreas Renschler, Member of the Daimler AG Board of Management with responsibility for Daimler Trucks.
On the occasion of the market launch of the new Fuso Canter with Euro 5-compliant engines in Europe, the truck was today presented in Munich to the international trade press. Fuel consumption, emissions, and weight are down, and economy, environmental friendliness, and payload are up — the new generation Fuso Canter light truck benefits worldwide from a new generation of engines and transmissions.
“Today’s and future emission regulations demand a high level of investment and technological specialization. The new Canter with Euro 5-compliant engines is one of the most modern, technologically advanced, and environmentally friendly light duty trucks for the business operations of Fuso customers,” explains Andreas Renschler.
New Euro 5-compliant engines are extremely efficient
Tests conducted under realistic conditions indicate that fuel consumption will be reduced by five to eight percent compared to the predecessor model. The fuel savings are achieved by reducing displacement from 4.9 to 3.0 liters, resulting in lower charging during fuel injection and lighter engines. In addition, the engine brake (retarder), which comes as standard in the Fuso Canter, substantially reduces strain on the brakes. A reduction in the required scope of maintenance work also reduces servicing costs by around 20 percent.
BlueTec now available in Fuso Canter with 129 kW (175 hp)
The new Fuso Canter Euro 5 will be launched in stages and will have a uniform international appearance under the Fuso brand name. The new engines cover the Canter’s entire gross weight spectrum from 3.5 to 7.5 tons and meet the Euro 5 emissions standard. All engine variants feature an exhaust gas treatment system. In the two lower-powered variants, the exhaust gases are cleaned by a combination of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), oxidizing catalytic converter, and particulate filter. The most powerful engine variant additionally incorporates BlueTec with AdBlue. As a result, the Canter delivering 129 kW (175 hp) has the most advanced emission control currently available. BlueTec is already in use in many vehicles of the Daimler model range.
From spring 2010, the Fuso Canter will be available with EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) engines. The EEV standard guarantees a further reduction in particle emissions by around one third in comparison to the already stringent Euro 5 limits. The Fuso Canter will thus be well-equipped to also meet tighter environmental regulations.
The delivery of the new Fuso Canter in Europe starts from July. The Fuso Canter dates back to 1963 and is now enjoying success on the market in its seventh generation. Around 3.5 million Canters have rolled off the production line to date. A total of 144,000 units of the Canter were built last year, making it the world’s best-selling light truck of its class between 3.5 and 7.5 tons GVW, as well as the truck with the highest production output at the Daimler Group. For Europe, Fuso has been producing the compact truck according to the Japanese concept, with approximately 70 percent European components, in Tramagal, Portugal, since 1980. To date, more than 150,000 vehicles have been produced at the plant. Fuso is represented by more than 900 service partners in 33 markets throughout Europe.
