The first generation of the FUSO Canter light-duty truck came onto the market in March 1963 in Japan. 50 years and eight generations later, MFTBC is proud to celebrate the truck as a bestseller, with global sales of 3,700,000 units sold since its original market launch in its home market of Japan.
Dr. Albert Kirchmann, Head of Daimler Trucks Asia and MFTBC President & CEO, said:
For 50 years, the Canter light-duty truck has continually delivered on FUSO’s promise of ALL FOR YOU to our customers. This has made the Canter a big success story. Canter has proven itself over the last 50 years to be a very reliable and capable light-duty truck, not just in its home country of Japan, but around the globe. The Canter has played and continues to play a critical role in ongoing success of MFTBC as a company. In many countries, it is the Canter that customers know us by and on what the strength and reputation of the FUSO brand is based.
