Mitsubishi Fuso Secures Inaugural Pre-Launch Order for the New eCanter Truck in Taiwan


Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation has announced it has received the first customer order in the Taiwanese market for the new all-electric eCanter truck, through Daimler Truck Asia Taiwan Ltd., the local joint venture and official distributor of FUSO vehicles. President Transnet Corporation is the first company in Taiwan to commit to the eCanter in advance of its official 2024 launch.

Taiwan: A Vital Market for FUSO’s Electric Trucks

President Transnet is currently one of Taiwan’s leading logistics companies. It was founded in 2000 and operates a large fleet for its transportation business, including approximately 1,690 FUSO trucks. As the eCanter will be the first electric truck to be introduced into its business, President Transnet will conduct trial operations with a 5-tonne eCanter in Taipei to familiarize drivers and logistics managers with the truck’s technologies. Data and insights gathered during this time will also be a valuable resource for DTAT, as it prepares for the official market launch of the eCanter truck scheduled in the first quarter of 2024.

Taiwan holds a prominent position as one of the primary export markets for FUSO vehicles, offering a comprehensive lineup that spans the spectrum from light-duty to heavy-duty trucks. Within this diverse market landscape, FUSO has established a strong foothold, particularly excelling in the 5-tonne segment. It’s worth noting that the majority of vehicles sold in Taiwan’s commercial vehicle industry fall within the category of light-duty trucks, underscoring the increasing demand for electric mobility innovations in this segment.

In addition to Taiwan, Mitsubishi Fuso plans to begin sales of this new eCanter in further overseas markets such as Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Chile in the near future.
