Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) is an integral part of Daimler Truck AG, the commercial vehicles business of the Daimler Group. From its headquarters based in Kawasaki, Japan, MFTBC manufactures trucks, buses, and industrial engines for over 170 markets around the world, offering products ranging from the iconic light-duty Canter truck to the heavy-duty Super Great. In recent years, MFTBC has served as a development center for electric and autonomous drive technologies within the larger Daimler Truck network. MFTBC also operates under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, together with its partner organization Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV). This strategic unit allows the entities to collaborate on areas such as product development, parts sourcing and production to provide the best value to customers.
The FUSO success story began in Japan in 1932 with a small bus called the B46. Thirty-one years later in 1963, the first Canter rolled off the production line, ushering in the start of a unique vehicle history. That vehicle has to date been followed by well over four million vehicles with just one goal: to make transport on the continents of this world more efficient and more economical for the customer.
