Areas of application
The low-wear and low-maintenance DUONIC® dual clutch transmission combines the convenience of an automatic with the dynamic feel of a manual transmission. Smooth changes of gear, without any interruption to tractive power, make it the perfect partner in terms of driving comfort. In addition, the ‘park’ function allows you to leave your eCanter securely parked. With the ‘creep’ function you can move your vehicle slowly and safely without the need to depress the accelerator – ideal in heavy traffic or during cautious manoeuvring.
Plenty of grip on the road, maximum braking power off it. The FUSO Canter offers excellent protection against dust and dirt as the front and rear drum brakes ensure an even level of braking with ABS and electronic brake force distribution (EBD).
As well as the cost savings from its battery-powered engine, the FUSO eCanter boasts 30% less maintenance costs in comparison to diesel engines, making it an economical choice. Customers can also benefit from potential fuel savings of €1,000 per 10,000 km depending on diesel and power prices. It avoids congestion charges in central city locations due to it being 100% emission-free, meaning the total cost of ownership is highly competitive against standard diesel and petrol truck variants.
The eCanter’s all-electric drive train, connectivity and lower maintenance costs introduce the possibility for clean, quiet and efficient inner-city distribution. With an impressive 4.5t load capacity and a powerful 156hp motor, the eCanter allows plenty of scope for whatever you need in the load area, meaning you don’t have to compromise when it comes to suitability for your business. With AC and DC charging options, the eCanter can be fully charged in 7 hours (or just one hour using fast charging) and has a full payload range of over 100km. There are also no restrictions on use in inner city zones, meaning you can be sure the eCanter will get the job done as conveniently as possible.
The forward-thinking design of the eCanter compliments its technical features. The futuristic cabin design combines functionality with comfort. Driver-orientated design comes complete with 12″ displays, push start, button shift and comfortable seating. Plus, adaptive lighting ensures a car-like ambience. Merging digitalisation and connectivity, the eCanter offers a brand-new interface and user experience. The 12″ tablet provides accurate and reliable information via the new digital instrument panel and the truck’s design makes it easy to drive and agile in inner-city streets.
The state-of-the art battery pack consists of 100 Li-ion cells delivering a maximum voltage of 420V and 13.8kWh of energy per pack and is highly adaptable to customer needs. The battery charger supports both AC and DC charging via CHAdeMO, SAE J1772 and the CCS type 2 interface globally delivering a fast charge of 80% capacity in 1hr (DC) and 9hr (AC).
