FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid
The FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid: The first hybrid light truck that pays off
The FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid, Exclusively by Mercedes-Benz, is the first light-duty hybrid truck in Europe to go into standard production. It brings together 20 years of expertise in hybrid systems from FUSO and Daimler and marks a milestone in the development of new drive systems along the road to emission-free driving.

The Euro VI-compliant FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid, Exclusively by Mercedes-Benz, makes it very easy for you to save both fuel and money. On every trip. And the best thing is: after just a few years you will have recouped the additional cost for the hybrid model through the savings made on fuel.The powerful hybrid drive system, the electric motor of which uses energy recuperation to support the combustion engine, together with the standard stop/start function and DUONIC®, together reduce fuel consumption by as much as 23% – and the CO2 emissions as well.
And since the FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid is very much a genuine Canter, it also impresses with a high payload and a turning circle that is ideally suited to the demands of urban use. What’s more, it offers an excellent standard of ride comfort.
Technology and performance
The Canter 3.5t handles with ease, even in tight conditions. As a genuine all-rounder it has the longest body length of the segment and thus affords many individual body options. With a cab width of only 2 m you can get through narrow streets, where others can’t. All cabs offer ample space, and the independent suspension makes for good ride comfort and dynamic handling. In every respect the Canter 3.5t has what it takes – going where no other light truck dares to go.
Hybrid drive system
Saving fuel when driving, tanking energy when braking – that is the basic principle of the parallel hybrid drive. Energy is fed to the battery during braking. This then drives an electric motor that assists the combustion engine not only when next moving off, but also during acceleration. When combined with DUONIC® and the start/stop function, which switches the engine off when it comes to a standstill, then almost imperceptibly starts it again when the vehicle is ready to move off, it is possible to achieve fuel savings of up to 23%.
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 Canter Eco Hybrid 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.
Your investment in the durable and reliable 2 kWh lithium-ion battery of the latest generation is one that will definitely pay off. We therefore have no hesitation in providing a warranty of ten years on the key battery components.
As well as offering a high level of regenerative power and powerful torque, the ultra-slim electric motor/alternator impresses with its compact design as well as with the effectiveness of its interaction with the combustion engine.
The clearly legible hybrid display shows the driver the current state of charge. The energy flow display also makes it possible to establish when energy is being used or regenerated – and so to keep honing the driving style.
Frame and payload
Boasting a chassis load capacity of just under 5t, the Canter Eco Hybrid is in a class of its own. The weight-optimised frame, which has been protected against corrosion, opens up loading possibilities that are otherwise only offered by trucks in the 8.5t segment, while you are still able to take advantage of its compact dimensions.
The versatility offered in terms of its bodywork makes the new Canter Eco Hybrid the specialist for a wide diversity of applications in urban areas and over short distances – from delivery vehicle to municipal operations vehicle. Whatever you have in mind: the Canter Eco Hybrid offers an impressive combination of flexibility and efficiency.
