Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) has said that all its new vehicles for the Japanese market will be CO2-neutral by 2039 through the introduction of hydrogen and electric technologies.
As part of Daimler AG, MFTBC believes that truly CO2-neutral transportation will only be realised through either battery-powered electric vehicles or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and will therefore start producing these vehicles later this year.
At the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, MFTBC unveiled the Vision F-CELL, a light-duty fuel cell concept truck. The vehicle has since been further elaborated into the concept eCanter F-CELL, a light-duty truck.
The vehicle has a driving range of up to 300km and a reduced filling time of less than ten minutes.
“MFTBC is taking a leading role in realising the electrification of commercial vehicles. Our vision is to leverage the Daimler Group’s network and technology in developing advanced e-mobility solutions, fulfilling the goal of CO2-neutral transportation,” said Hartmut Schick, CEO of MFTBC.
“Through close collaboration with industry players, we aim to deliver CO2 neutral vehicles to customers and continue to offer better solutions to them.”
