Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus company announced on April 4 that it has sold 150 eCanter light-duty trucks globally, with over 1 million miles driven.
The eCanter was released in 2017. It is a light-duty truck with a gross vehicle weight of 7.5 tons and a maximum loading capacity of about 4 tons. It has the ability to run for about 100 kilometers (62 miles) after 1.5 hours of quick charging.
The truck is powered by a single motor with maximum output of 135 kW and 390 Nm torque. It has six high-voltage (370 V, 13.8 kWh) lithium-ion battery packs.
In Japan, 53 units were shipped in the Kanto, Tokai and Hokuriku regions, and a total of 101 units were sold overseas to Europe and the United States, mostly used as garbage trucks.
Its parent company, Daimler Germany, plans to mass produce fuel cell (FC) trucks in the late 2020s, alongside EV trucks, each emitting zero carbon dioxide (CO2) will reduce the environmental burden.
Mitsubishi Fuso also exhibited a concept model of the FC truck at Tokyo Motor Show.
