Creating a brighter future with all who keep the world moving
FUSO’s booth, created with the slogan “Future Together”, refers to the brand’s contribution to a sustainable society. The collaborative and creative aspect of the tagline is reflected in a building-block inspired design motif und booth design. FUSO’s highlight at JMS is the unveil of the fully remodelled heavy-duty Super Great truck. FUSO’s Next Generation eCanter will be displayed with tipper body with power take-off device (ePTO) and garbage truck application. Furthermore, FUSO and Ample Inc. will showcase the latest eCanter model with a swappable battery module and a swapping station. On the service side, FUSO is launching new eMobility solutions with FUSO Green Lease, a leasing program exclusively for the eCanter in Japan and Truckonnect*, a telematics service for vehicle management and monitoring for FUSO products.
The new FUSO Super Great: High performance combined with efficiency and state-of-the-art safety features
FUSO’s new Super Great truck celebrates its world premiere at JMS and is joining the Daimler Truck heavy-duty truck family as a fully remodelled truck after its launch in 2017. The new Super Great is sharing the platform with Daimler Truck heavy-duty trucks and is equipped with the 6R30 high-performance 12.8L engine, which is based on the OM471 engine and produced in the Daimler Truck plant in Mannheim, Germany.
The new 6R30 engine improves thermal efficiency by increasing combustion pressure through increased compression ratio and turbo modification. Two types of turbochargers are configured to match the engine’s power output, resulting in an increase in torque, particularly at lower speeds. Optimizations have been made to better accommodate earlier shifting at lower speeds. These improvements to the combustion system, as well as the reduction of driving resistance and tuning of various engine parts, have resulted in an even better fuel economy.
The high torque of the large-capacity engine provides ample traction on long hills and excellent response during acceleration, leading to improved driving comfort. The 6R30 engine boasts a higher NOx (nitrous oxide) purification rate with the BlueTec®** system in exhaust aftertreatment, reducing the consumption of AdBlue®*** (urea water) and contributing to lower running costs in vehicle operation.
Using Daimler Trucks global platform strategy, the Super Great comes with the most advanced Daimler Truck safety technology features. The truck is equipped with Active Brake Assist 6 (ABA®6) and Active Side Guard Assist® 2.0 as part of the standard product offering. Front Blind Spot Information System, a low-speed collision warning system, detects pedestrians and bicycles approaching the front of the vehicle (a challenging blind spot for drivers). A high-performance rear-view camera system is providing peace of mind when backing up by providing a direct view to the area behind the vehicle.
The new FUSO Super Great comes with an updated cab design to improve aerodynamics. The new super high roof provides a significantly expanded interior space for an improved driving experience. The roomier cab space also contains more storage, for busy drivers requiring smooth access to documents and tools. The super high roof configuration also reduces aerodynamic drag during driving, contributing to better fuel economy. Available colour schemes for the interior furnishings have also been updated, with black and red designs offered depending on the vehicle grade. As part of the updated cab design, FUSO is introducing a new LED headlight configuration integrating fog lamps and turn lamps into a more consolidated area. The remodelled lights contribute to better aerodynamics and safer driving on the road.

About the eCanter
The eCanter is the Japanese market’s first series-produced, all-electric truck developed by MFTBC as a solution to urban environmental issues such as noise, exhaust gas, and CO2 emissions. As the eCanter is locally emission free with its electric motor and produces less noise and vibration compared to conventional diesel-powered vehicles, it is particularly suited to inner-city routes as well as operations during late night and early morning hours. After the launch of the first model in 2017, MFTBC released an improved model with enhanced safety equipment in August 2020. Since its launch, the truck has been chosen by customers in Japan, Europe, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Since 2023, the Next Generation eCanter, the fully remodelled eCanter with a significantly expanded number of variants, caters customer’s business needs. The new model is also scheduled to be rolled out in additional overseas markets.
