The Fuso Canter is a light and medium-duty commercial vehicle from Fuso. Initially, the model was only available in Japan and a number of other Asian countries. From the late 1980s, this model was also sold in the USA.
Production of the first Fuso Canter vehicles to be exported from Asia began in 1962. The Fuso Canter was still exported to other regions, such as Europe, North America and the Middle East. Most models of the city truck can be identified by the Fuso Canter logo at the front. The Mitsubishi logo is usually applied at the rear. In 2003, the commercial vehicle division of Daimler was able to acquire an 85% stake in Fuso following a spin-off of the division from the Mitsubishi Group. The same proportion of the Fuso Canter model series thus also belongs to Daimler Trucks.
The Fuso assembly plant in Tramagal, Portugal, is the exclusive supplier of Fuso Canter vehicles to the European market. The vehicles are available as single or double-cabin models.
