Helps avoid or mitigate collisions with pedestrians and other vehicles, using a radar to monitor the road ahead.
eCANTER DRIVES SUSTAINABILITY.
FUSO is guided by the three pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic. eCanter delivers on all three.
Environmental: eCanter is 100% electric-powered with zero on-road emissions.
Social: eCanter contributes towards cleaner, quieter urban areas, with advanced safety features to better protect the driver, other road-users and pedestrians.
Economic: eCanter is cheaper to run, with no diesel costs and currently no road user charges. eCanter also provides a strategic advantage for early adopters, delivering a zero-emissions solution to meet growing market demand from new and existing customers.
LEADING EDGE TECHNOLOGY
The world’s first series-produced, fully electric light truck, eCanter represents an opportunity for transport operators to be at the leading edge of commercial EV technology, and to gain a competitive edge by spearheading the sector’s response to calls for climate change action.
Wherever you operate in the supply chain, the question of sustainability is being asked by customers, partners and policy-makers at a local and international level. In New Zealand, the target for emissions has been set – for light commercial transport, FUSO leads the way towards achieving that target.
A SAFER WAY OF WORKING.
eCanter’s sustainability credentials are matched by its exceptionally high safety standards, in keeping with Fuso New Zealand’s dedication to promoting safer journeys on our roads. A range of crash avoidance technologies ensure greater protection for your most precious asset – your people – while an ergonomic design and car-like functionality place premium importance on driver comfort.
ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM
Lane Departure Warning System
LDWS reduces the risk of lane departure accidents by using a camera behind the windscreen, which detects lane markings and triggers an alert if the vehicle crosses with no indicator.
Electronic Stability Control
ESC employs multiple sensors to detect loss of steering control and apply brake force at each wheel, which aids steering control and improves stability.
FUSO eCanter is driven by a permanent synchronous electric motor, powered by an 81kWh (420v) lithium-ion, liquid-cooled battery pack. It delivers an impressive 135kW and 390Nm, which provides a range of 100-150km* on a single charge – well-suited to around-town delivery routes.
Two-stage regeneration captures kinetic energy created by the vehicles momentum and stores it in the batteries for future use. Efficient use of the regeneration settings will extend the practical range of the eCanter.
* Depending on conditions. Contact us for further information.
A standard CCS2 plug is used for charging, with downtime minimised thanks to DC fast charge capability that will have the battery at 80% capacity in under one hour (100% in 80 minutes). eCanter comes equipped with an AC charge cable (max 32A), which will allow a full charge overnight using off-peak power.
The eCanter was built for the urban environment. Engine and noise pollution are almost nil, making it well suited for around-town applications such as FMCG delivery, furniture removal, refuse and recycling, light commercial work and chilled goods delivery.
eCanter will easily fit into your fleet – its electric drivetrain is fitted to a standard 3,400mm wheelbase FUSO Canter cab chassis, meaning customers and bodybuilders will be working with the same, familiar 750mm wide frame.
FUSO celebrates arrival of first eCanter trucks
After five years of preparation in New Zealand and more than three million kilometres of road testing internationally, FUSO is thrilled to announce the arrival of six of the world’s first series-produced with integrated safety features, fully electric light trucks at the Auckland Port on Saturday.
FUSO eCanter launched to ZEA trial participants
FUSO eCanter's first New Zealand adopters, including Mainfreight, Bidfood, Toll, Owens Transport and Vector OnGas, joined representatives from government and infrastructure for a special launch event and information session at Fuso NZ in Auckland.
Lead role for eCanter in NZ’s zero-emission transition
Fuso New Zealand’s industry-leading FUSO eCanter has received a vote of confidence from the Energy and Resources Minister Dr Megan Woods and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority.
The all-electric eCanter has already been signed up to fleets worldwide by companies such as DHL, UPS and 7-Eleven. It could be followed by a ready-for-work eCanter waste collection truck.
