The word “Fuso” derives from an ancient Chinese term for a sacred tree said to grow at a spot in the East where the sun rises, and has been used to refer to Japan itself where the brand originates. The Fuso brand name first appeared in 1932 in conjunction with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ so-called “B46” commercial bus. In 1963, the first “Canter” was introduced to the market. The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter light-duty truck would become the company’s best-selling vehicle of all time, and maintains its excellent reputation today. In Japan, Southeast Asia, and Middle East and around the world, “Mitsubishi Fuso” stands for superior products, outstanding service, economic value and a commitment to customers’ success.
