Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation announced that ENOC Link, the digital mobile fuel delivery service for businesses in the UAE, has featured the Fuso eCanter at the 23rd Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the Dubai Solar Show.
This is the first time the all-electric truck is being presented to the public in the UAE.
The Fuso eCanter on display came with specially prepared features such as an aluminium tanker body which is 30% lighter than normal steel tankers, providing more efficiency.
The exhibition vehicle was also equipped with an advanced metering solution which connects to the cloud for instant and continuous data transmission.
Following its display at WETEX and Dubai Solar Show, it is said that the ENOC Group will also exhibit the eCanter at the Service Station of the Future created for the Expo 2020 Dubai.
As the Official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, the ENOC Group has built a concept for a state-of-the-art, sustainably designed fuel station.
The UAE is a key focus market for the FUSO brand, and is serviced by a full range of products varying from light to heavy-duty trucks, as well as bus models such as the light-duty Rosa and the BA.
The Fuso Canter trucks, which are exported as BU vehicles from MFTBC’s Kawasaki Plant, have been maintaining top market share in the light-duty segment since their introduction.
In 2020, Mitsubishi Fuso introduced an upgraded Canter which became the first series-produced light-duty truck in the UAE to comply with Euro V emissions standards to overachieve on local regulations.
The eCanter is the series-produced all-electric truck developed by MFTBC as a solution to urban environmental issues such as noise, exhaust gas and CO2 emissions.
The eCanter, which falls under the 7.5-ton gross vehicle weight class, ensures a range of about 100 kilometers per charge.
The electric drive system carries a motor (maximum output: 135 kW; maximum torque: 390 Nm) and six high-voltage (370 V, 13.5 kWh) lithium-ion battery packs. With quick-charging stations, the vehicle only takes up to approximately 1.5 hours to fully recharge.
