Fuso Canter: world's bestselling light commercial vehicle now with further improvements

The production version of the Fuso Canter on show at the IAA has been noticeably upgraded. The world's best-selling light commercial vehicle covers the range from 3.5 t to 8.55 t permissible gross vehicle weight. The upgrade includes a new colour concept for the interior with functional black, high-quality flooring and chrome trim in the cockpit.

From a technical point of view the focus is on the second generation of the Duonic double clutch transmission. A new shift strategy saves fuel, and the new clutch further increases the longevity of the robust Canter. All Canter with Duonic now feature a hill holder as standard and optional cruise control. The engines in all Canter now comply with the Euro VI emissions standard, combined with SCR technology.

Also new is the Canter 7C18 model variant with a 2800 mm wheelbase. It is perfect for use on construction sites, where short bodies need to be combined with high payload, good engine power and high manoeuvrability. The Canter is also embarking on a new career as a fire-fighting vehicle. As bodybuilders have lowered the seat surface, the Canter crewcab now meets DIN firefighting and fire protection standards and can be used as a fire-extinguishing vehicle for the whole team. Key here is the vehicle's versatility with single and crew cabs and 4x2 and 4x4 drive.
