Daimler Truck and its Japanese subsidiary Mitsubishi Fuso Bus and Truck Corporation have delivered the first of around 900 FUSO Next Generation eCanter light-duty electric trucks ordered by Yamato Transport, a Japanese door-to-door delivery service company.
Yamato Transport is acquiring the trucks by means of FUSO Green Lease, a product of Daimler Truck Financial Services Asia that includes vehicle maintenance services and warranties.
The eCanter was launched by FUSO in 2017 as Japan’s first mass-produced electric light-duty truck. Its latest iteration was developed with the help of customer feedback. The Next Generation model has been introduced this year in Europe, Japan, Indonesia, Chile and several other overseas markets.
