Fuso to bring the eCanter to Chile

The new Fuso eCanter is making its way to one of Fuso’s largest markets in South America. The remodelled eCanter, presented in September 2022, will go on sale in Chile later this year.

The vehicle was unveiled for the first time to domestic customers at an event on 17 August. The eCanter for Chile will be available in five variants, ranging from 6.5 to 8.55 tonnes in GVW, with various body applications to match diverse business needs. Three battery sizes will offer a driving range of up to 200 km on one charge.

Production of the newly updated eCanter started at Fuso’s production plant in Tramagal, Portugal in May, after presenting the vehicle update in late 2022. Shortly after starting production, Daimler & Toyota decided to merge Fuso with electric truck manufacturer Hino Trucks. However, it will still be some time before the affair has been settled: “Details of the scope and nature of the collaboration, including the name, location, shareholding and corporate structure of the new holding company, will be determined over the next 18 months.” What is clear, is that the two companies plan to sign a final agreement in the first quarter of 2024 and to complete the transaction by the end of 2024.
