FUSO out of US new truck market
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.
