The eCanter – E-FUSO’s first
zero emission light-duty truck
zero emission light-duty truck
The eCanter allows customers to take advantage of a light duty electric truck that is both economical and environmentally friendly, not to mention dependable, maneuverable, and quiet, as the solution for clean urban deliveries. The eCanter is only the first of many other electric vehicles from Mitsubishi FUSO’s E-FUSO to be developed in the next several years.
Zero emission is our Vision
The United Nations (UN) expect that 70% of the nine billion people worldwide will be living in cities in 2050. E-mobility and eco-friendliness of trucks are becoming one of the most important criteria for customers who make buying decisions for commercial vehicles.
The emission free electrically-powered truck made by Mitsubishi FUSO is taking the lead in the advancement of the sustainable mobility market.
Industry pioneer in the E-mobility sector
The eCanter impresses with an optimized powertrain including an electric motor of 115kW, connected to the reduction gear which transfers the power to the wheels via the propeller shaft and rear axle.
The total weight allowance is 7.49t with a load capacity of up to 4.5t and is therefore exempt, for instance, from tolls in Germany. The state-of-the art battery pack consists of 100 Li-ion cells that deliver a maximum voltage of 420 V and 13.8kWh of energy per pack. The battery charger supports both AC and DC charging via CHAdeMO, SAE J1772 and the CCS type 2 interface globally. Thus, 80% of charging is possible in 1hr (DC) and 9hr (AC). The modular battery concept is adaptable to customer needs, and is produced using modern manufacturing methods.
Economically profitable due to 30% less maintenance costs
In comparison you will have 30 % less maintenance costs and potential fuel savings of 1,000 euros per 10,000 km depending on diesel and power prices.
The additional costs of purchasing an eCanter will be paid for over the first three years. The forward thinking design approach for the eCanter also compliments its technical features. The futuristic cabin design combines functionality with comfort. Driver oriented design comes equipped with 12″ displays, push start, button shift and comfortable seats. And the adaptive lighting ensures a car like ambience.
Charging is also possible on conventional sockets. The efficiency of an electrically powered vehicle fleet of eCanters gives customers the opportunity to perfectly balance load times, electricity usage rates, electricity demand, as well as the technical infrastructure. E-FUSO offers customized solutions in energy management, which are tailored to the needs of customers.
Digitalization and Connectivity made Intelligent
Digital transformation has arrived in the automotive industry providing an interface between intelligently connected automobiles.
By merging elements of both digitalization and connectivity, FUSO offers a brand new interface and user experience on a 12″ tablet. Drivers will be provided with more accurate and reliable information via the new digital instrument panel. And Drive position of the vehicle can be selected by P, D, N, R.
Easy handling compared to conventional trucks
Another benefit the eCanter offers is comfortable usage. The keyless push start system supports the electric drive experience and convenience to drivers in terms of hassle-free operation compared to conventional trucks.
Experience the test-drive
World premiere 2017: the FUSO eCanter
E-Fuso’s first series-produced all-electric light-duty truck had its worldwide launch in New York City, in September 2017.
The eCanter has a GVW of 7.5 tons and a range of 100-120 km on a single charge. The first small series of the eCanter was handed over to a number of customers worldwide including; in Japan, to the convenience-store giant, Seven-Eleven, and Japan’s largest delivery logistics provider, Yamato; in the United States, to United Parcel Service (UPS), and several NGOs, including Habitat for Humanity, Wildlife Conservation Society, and The New York Botanical Garden; and in Europe to DHL, DB Schenker, Rhenus and Dachser.
From FUSO Canter E-CELL to FUSO eCanter
This newest truck represents the third generation of the world’s first all-electric light duty truck. It is the culmination of steps taken to move from the development of FUSO’s Canter E-CELL small series to eCanter’s series production today.
The eCanter is built upon hundreds of thousands of kilometres of extensive fleet testing completed across multiple countries. First presented to the world at IAA 2016, the eCanter had its world-wide launch in New York City on 14th September 2017. Without large strides recently made in battery and electrical component technology, the launch of a vehicle as advanced as the eCanter would not have been possible.
The E- FUSO eCanter with its locally emission-free drive will not only relieve city centres from excess exhaust and noise emissions, but will also be an economically attractive alternative to the diesel engine. Due to lower technology costs, the eCanter can be offered at a very competitive price – thanks to lower operating costs compared to the same size diesel model – it can be paid for by customers in less than 3 years’ time.
