  • S-Line Group is the first company to deploy the all-electric light-duty truck in the Chubu region

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC; headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; President and CEO Hartmut Schick), in line with its Vision to lead the commercial vehicle industry into the future, today announced it delivered five eCanter electric light-duty trucks on February 9 to S-line Gifu Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Ginancho, Hashima-gun, Gifu; headed by President Yoshihiko Yamaguchi) and S-line Kakamigahara Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Kakamigahara City, Gifu; headed by President Kimihisa Hashimoto).

The S-line Group picked the eCanter because it helps the company implement initiatives for addressing global warming, introducing environment-friendly vehicles, and offering eco-friendly logistics services, which are the priority challenges under the group’s activities to improve the environment.

As the eCanter is electrically-driven, it emits no exhaust gas and is noise- and vibration-free, reducing the effect of the vehicle on the environment significantly. Moreover, compared with the conventional diesel counterpart, it vibrates less, alleviating physical burdens on the driver; it is thus expected to improve a work environment further.
