Mitsubishi FUSO establishes Chief Transformation Officer
Key responsibilities for the CTO will focus on four areas:
- Scaling the business based on overall market volume as MFTBC works towards introducing eCanter 2.1.
- Providing comprehensive solutions with adjacent offerings to customers, including base vehicles, co-design and operational integrations.
- Creating additional value beyond total cost of ownership. Scope includes data enabled business models, telematics, fleet management, charging infrastructure, finance and leasing programs.
- Developing business partnerships in Japan and globally across a wide variety of areas and eMobility ecosystem and infrastructure.
MTBFC’s stated goal is to electrify its entire range by 2039 and has already introduced the FUSO eCanter, the world’s first series-produced all-electric light duty truck, which landed in New Zealand mid-2021.
Hartmut Schick, President and CEO of MFTBC, said: “Climate change is a topic that needs to be addressed and solved worldwide. MFTBC is a pioneer in eMobility. As such, we are committed to further spearheading the electrification of trucks and buses. Establishing the function of a Chief Transformation Officer will accelerate the decarbonisation of our [range].”
