Mitsubishi Fuso Commercial Trucks History

Throwback Thursday – Mitsubishi Fuso Trucks

After doing a little research we found some interesting Mitsubishi Fuso history and some cool old pictures:

Fuso began in 1932 with the production of it’s first commercial vehicle, a passenger bus named the B46. The bus would carry up to 38 people and was equipped with a 100 h.p., 6 cyl gas engine.

With the release of the B46 bus, a celebration was held where employees were invited to offer ideas for a name and the “Fuso” name won out.

In 1963, approximately 31 years later, the first Canter was born and since then over 4 million vehicles have been produced. The “Fuso” focus has always been to provide vehicles that would make delivery and transportation more cost efficient and more economical for customers across the globe.
