New Zealand Truck & Driver - - Front Page -

MIT­SUBISHI FUSO, WHICH HAS BEEN AC­TIVE in North Amer­ica with its light-duty trucks, is pulling out of the new truck mar­ket in the United States and Canada.

Mit­subishi Fuso Truck of Amer­ica says once cur­rent stock held by MFTA and its dealer is sold, it will dis­con­tinue new truck sales.

The move, it says, is the re­sult of a re-eval­u­a­tion of its “busi­ness sit­u­a­tion” in North Amer­ica by par­ent com­pany, Mit­subishi Fuso Truck and Bus Cor­po­ra­tion.

The com­pany plans to shift to a ser­vice-fo­cused op­er­a­tion in the US and Canada.,

MFTA says that North Amer­i­can cus­tomers will “re­main sup­ported through an au­tho­rised Fuso ser­vice net­work for war­ranty re­pairs, main­te­nance ser­vices, and re­place­ment parts, un­til 2028.”

MFTA will also con­tinue to sup­port the eCan­ter elec­tric trucks that are in op­er­a­tion in the US, un­der lease agree­ments with cus­tomers – who have been test­ing them in last-mile de­liv­ery fleets.

Ear­lier this year, MFTA cel­e­brated its 35th an­niver­sary in the US.
