Mitsubishi Fuso Canter Euro 5 vehicles produced from February 2010 come with EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) compliance as standard
EEV particulate emissions are some 30 % below the Euro 5 level
First light truck in the 3.5-t to 7.5-t perm GVW segment with EEV for all model variants
Stuttgart – From February 2010 the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter comes with EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) compliance as standard and therefore offers even greater environmental compatibility (through a reduction in particulate emissions of some 30 %, for example) than the existing Euro 5 engine range. As all the engine variants comply with the new standard – from the 96-kW (130-hp) version to the 107-kW (145-hp) unit right up to the new 129-kW (175-hp) engine – all vehicles ordered from November 2009 come with it. This makes the Canter the first light truck in the 3.5-t to 7.5-t perm. GVW segment to provide EEV compliance for all model variants. Fuel consumption is not increased as a result. EEV is particularly relevant with regard to fleet operators and municipalities as compliance with this voluntary standard is a condition of certain invitations to tender.
The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter is a real success story. It has been in production since 1963 and today is in its seventh generation. Since its launch, some 3.5 million Canters have rolled off the assembly lines around the world; this makes it the world’s best-selling vehicle for the lightweight truck class between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes perm. GVW. In Europe, these vehicles have been distributed and supported exclusively by the Daimler sales organisation since 2001. An outstanding feature of the Canter is its high payload capacity – in the case of the Fuso Canter 7C15 (7.5 tonnes perm. GVW), for example, the chassis weight rating of 5.02 t results in a payload of about 4000 kg, depending on the body variant – with compact exterior dimensions.
