Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) —an entity under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia— has announced that it will electrify its complete range of trucks and buses in upcoming years. At the Tokyo Motor Show, the company launched its new product brand E-FUSO being the first OEM to launch a brand dedicated to electric mobility of trucks and buses.
The company also 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. Substantial investments as well as access to the Daimler Network of battery and charging technology will back this strategy, and make E-FUSO the frontrunner in electric trucks.
With the launch of the product brand E-FUSO, MFTBC underlines its commitment to electrify its complete range of products. The commitment goes beyond the development of the heavy-duty truck, which marks the top end of the electrification process. In upcoming years, all truck and bus models by FUSO will include an additional electric powertrain alternative. The timing for the launch of each model will be in relation to the required technology and feasibility.
