2011 Mitsubishi Fuso Canter introduced in Australia

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 9, 2011

The eighth generation Canter light truck has recently been introduced in Australia, the third major market it has been offered to after first making the rounds in Japan and North America. It will be made available in European markets in 2011, with over 40 new countries set to receive it by the end of next year.

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) President Dr. Albert Kirchmann said that the launch in Australia represents how much Fuso is committed to the local market.

The Fuso Canter is the first commercial truck to integrate a dual-clutch transmission, dubbed as the DUONICTM (6-speed automated dual clutch-type manual transmission). It’s also the first in the Australian market to use the BlueTec emissions reduction system.

Combustion is optimized by the BlueTec diesel technology, which treats the exhaust gas in a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The system converts nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water vapor with the addition of the aqueous carbamide solution AdBlue.

Compared to the predecessor models, its weight had been reduced by over 150 kilograms. These reductions primarily affect the chassis.

The truck is able to carry a higher payload. Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific, Pty Ltd (MBAuP) will distribute the new Canter and the Fighter medium-duty truck. It also handles sales of Fuso’s other commercial vehicles in the country. It has a 50-dealer network throughout Australia.
