The Fuso Canter is a light duty truck covering GVM's from 3,500kg to 8,000kg. The "Not so squeezy" Mitsubishi Canter has long been a favourite in the light duty truck market with it's versatility and variety of options. With a choice of cabs, engines and bodies, the Canter suits a variety of applications, including off-road requirements with the ever-popular Fuso 4x4.
Fuso Trucks has introduced their most comprehensive and formidable Canter range ever. With the world’s first dual clutch gearbox for a truck, an EEV emission compliant engine range, and the only light duty Japanese truck to offer 30,000km service intervals, the Canter is better suited than ever to meet your business needs.
Fuso know that reliability and durability are key items that all owners and drivers expect from a new truck. Fuso Trucks have put the Canter through over 3 million km's of testing in a wide variety of climates and terrains to ensure the Canter will perform as it should and deliver worry free trucking.
The Canter offers a payload advantage over other Japanese trucks with the same GVM rating. This is particularly important with 4500kg GVM trucks where reasonable payloads are compromised because of the need to be able to drive the truck on a car license. For example: Canter 515 Wide Cab with a GVM rating of 4500kg is over 200kg lighter than a comparable Japanese competitor model.
A suspended driver’s seat on all wide cab models is a feature that all Canter operators will appreciate, while the inclusion of double wishbone independent front suspension on 4500kg GVM cab chassis models adds to the car-like driving experience.

The Cabs in the Canter range offer the safety and comfort they have become known for. The cab options include Narrow Cabs, Wide Cabs and Dual Cabs.
Narrow Cabs and Wide Cabs provide seating for 3, while the Crew Cabs provide seating for up to 7 people.
Other features include:
All Canter models come with a Double Overhead Can, Bosch Common Rail Direct Injection engine. This engine was designed to reduce fuel consumption while still delivering maximum torque over a wide engine rpm range.
The Canter EEV compliant emgine exceeds the Euro 5 emission standard. Compared to Euro 5 compliant vehicles, EEV compliant vehicles have 33% lower particulate matter (PM) and 25% lower carbon monoxide (CO).
The 4P10 direct injection diesel engine already meets the stringent Japanese standard due to be introduced in 2015.
Fuso is the world’s first and only manufacturer to offer Duonic – a dual clutch AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) in a truck. Fuso’s Duonic transmission delivers all the advantages of a full automatic gearbox without any of its weaknesses. Coupled with Fuso’s variable geometry turbo diesel engine, Duonic provides an extremely responsive and enjoyable drive that is superior to any other truck AMT currently on the market.
The Duonic dual clutch system pre-selects the next gear with “virtually no torque interruption” as you move from one gear to the next. The result is no power lag and the transition between gears is seamless, making it feel just like a full automatic.
Duonic has a ‘park’ function that mechanically locks the transmission for improved safety; a handy feature not found on some other AMT’s.
Introducing the 2nd Generation Eco-Hybrid
Fuso have been manufacturing hybrid trucks since 2006 and selling them in Australia since 2009. In that time, customer experience has demonstrated the the 1st generation was capable of significant fuel savings. Now even better, the 2nd generation Eco-Hybrid from Canter has been designed to continue to reduce impact on the environment and save customers running costs, and in addition the 2nd generation offers a more attractive purchase price.
The Canter Eco-Hybrid incorporates a diesel engine and an electric motor. Depending on driving conditions, the system can actively switch between power sources to provide you with optimal performance. It is fitted with the 4P10 3L engine and the smooth Duonic dual clutch. It also features an idle stop/start system so drivers can turn off the engine when stopped at lights or in heavy traffic.
The Eco-Hybrid has been cleverly designed to deliver best results in stop/start traffic and lot to medium speeds.
