Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp. is participating in the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011 with an exhibit featuring its products under the theme “Power to the Future.” Fuso is presenting four vehicles, including the world premiere preview of the new Canter Eco Hybrid light-duty truck, the Japan premiere of the Canter E-Cell electric truck, the first public exhibition of the Super Great Eco Hybrid heavy-duty truck and a display of the Aero Queen bus with advanced diesel technology. In addition, the company has constructed a technology exhibit featuring its new light-duty truck hybrid system and the BlueTec exhaust gas aftertreatment system.

The Tokyo Motor Show is open to the public from Dec. 3-11 at Tokyo Big Sight, Odaiba, Tokyo. “Fuso is committed to Leadership in Green Innovation,” said Dr. Albert Kirchmann, MFTBC president and chief executive officer. “The vehicles and technologies on display at Tokyo Motor Show represent our ‘power’ to deliver trucks and buses that are fuel efficient, low emissions, with low cost of ownership for customers, and in harmony with society.”

According to Dr. Kirchmann, the company’s Tokyo Motor Show theme, “Power to the Future,” also means that Fuso develops various drive systems for a greener future. These include advanced diesel power with the BlueTec emissions reduction system, hybrid-electric power and all-electric power. “We plan to further enhance our leading fuel efficiency position in conventionally-powered diesel vehicles, while pushing forward with advanced technologies like hybrid-electric and all-electric vehicles,” he said. “We see all of these technologies in the future of clean vehicles. All will give us ‘Power to the
Future.’ ”

The technologies on display by Fuso at the Tokyo Motor Show are also in line with “Fuso 2015,” the company’s five-pillar growth strategy for the future introduced in October of this year. One of the five pillars is “Leader in Green Innovation,” meaning the company focuses on advances in green products, green factory and infrastructure, and green supply chain to achieve an aggregate CO2 reduction of 7.5 percent by 2015.
