Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, announces the world premiere of the new light-duty Canter truck. The new model, which comes with a redesigned cab, will be available through MFTBC retail locations across Japan from November 2020. The new Canter is the first light-duty truck in Japan to come standard with the advanced safety feature Active Sideguard Assist®**. Active Sideguard Assist detects pedestrians or other vehicles on the left side of the truck through radar sensors. This safety feature emits alerts whenever it detects any risk of collision when the driver is steering to the left or has turned on the left-turn signal. In addition to the Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) already included in the previous model, the newly installed Active Sideguard Assist enables further safety support. The installment of Active Sideguard Assist in this new Canter means all truck models available in the Japanese market now come with the feature.
