Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, a hundred per cent wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, Germany, announced the 50th anniversary of the Fuso Canter. The first generation of the Fuso Canter truck was launched in March 1963. Fifty years and eight generations later, Daimler is celebrating the truck as a best-selling hit with global sales of over 3,700,000 units since the market launch in its home market Japan. The light-duty Fuso Canter truck is the flagship of the Daimler subsidiary, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), and is in demand by customers in more than 150 countries around the world. The Fuso Canter, which has been produced for the European market in Tramagal, Portugal since 1980, enjoys growing popularity in Europe. Since last year, the Fuso Canter truck is also available in Europe as a hybrid variant, which uses up to 23 per cent less fuel than a comparable conventional Canter.
