Fuso Canter trucks available to solar-based auxiliary power options

June 28, 2013

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (MFTA) and eNow have reached agreement to offer a range of solar-based auxiliary power systems (APU) in the Canter FE/FG Series of medium-duty trucks.

Applications range from 30-watt systems to help keep batteries charged, to 6,400-watt systems capable of powering liftgates and refrigeration systems.

“Mitsubishi Fuso Truck has a long history of making environmentally sound vehicles. Our new partnership with eNow is another step in assuring our customers have access to vehicles that consistently offer lower cost-of-ownership, while maintaining as small an environmental footprint as is practical. And in this case, environmentally sound technology also solves specific operating issues for some of the auxiliary equipment our customers install on their trucks,” said Todd Bloom, MFTA’s president and CEO.

The eNow systems will be available through more than 200 Mitsubishi Fuso dealers in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

 “This new partnership further expands the availability of our sun-powered technology to the commercial transportation industry. It’s a move that makes great economic sense and helps efforts to reduce targeted emissions. We look forward to working with Mitsubishi Fuso in this exciting venture,” said Jeff Flath, CEO of eNow.
