Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) launched five new models earlier this week, comprising three medium-duty trucks, (FI 1217C dump; FI 1217R cargo, and FJ 1523C ready mixed concrete) and two heavy-duty trucks (FJ 2528R cargo; and FZ 4928T tractor).
According to the company, yhe trucks will come with customer service that includes a 2 year warranty and 24 hour roadside assistance.
The newly-launched models are produced at Daimler’s manufacturing plant in Chennai, India, and exported from there to Thailand.
In Thailand the trucks are sold and marketed by Fuso Truck Company Limited, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Tan Chong International Limited, which also assembles and distributes some FUSO models coming from Japan.
Michael Kamper, Senior Vice President, Head of Marketing Sales and Customer Service, Daimler Trucks Asia, said, “Thailand is one of our strategic markets in Asia, and we intend to significantly increase market share for our FUSO brand in close cooperation with our distributor Tan Chong. These newly launched robust FUSO trucks from our Indian production will help to further strengthen our portfolio and offer more choice for our customers.”
