Kawasaki, Japan — Mitsubishi Fuso #truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC; headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; President and CEO: Hartmut Schick) is pleased to announce that ENOC Link, the digital mobile fuel delivery service for businesses in the UAE, has featured the eCanter at the 23rd Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the #dubai Solar Show, from October 5th to 7th, 2021. This is the first time that the pioneering all-electric #truck was presented to the public in the UAE.  

ENOC Link provides digitally managed and monitorable deliveries of diesel, bio-diesel, and petrol for business in the UAE to aid in operational optimizations. The service is overseen by the ENOC Group (Emirates National Oil Company), a wholly owned concern of the Government of #dubai. ENOC Link has partnered with Daimler Trucks’ regional center Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA (DCV MENA) to showcase the near-silent and locally emission-free eCanter with specially prepared features such as an aluminum tanker body which is 30% lighter than normal steel tankers, providing more efficiency. The exhibition vehicle has also been equipped with an advanced metering solution which connects to the cloud for instant and continuous data transmission.

WETEX and the #dubai Solar Show are organized by the #dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) in support of the Emirate’s vision to build a sustainable future through innovation. Each year, the event provides global businesses the opportunity to feature the latest insights and breakthroughs in the fields of energy, natural resources, and sustainability. As early as 2010, the UAE launched a national agenda known as Vision 2021, under which the government has pushed for the creation of a #green economy. Since the Vision’s inception, the UAE has invested continuously into environmentally conscious urban planning, transport, and technology. DEWA has installed more than 300 #ev charging stations across the emirate of #dubai, while innovative programs such as hassle-free QR code-enabled charging have been motivating drivers to consider electric solutions.

Following its display at WETEX and #dubai Solar Show, the ENOC Group will also exhibit the eCanter at the Service Station of the Future created for the Expo 2020 #dubai. As the Official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020 #dubai, the ENOC Group has built a concept for a state-of-the-art, sustainably designed fuel station. The Service Station of the Future's canopy comprises 37 tonnes of eco-friendly carbon fiber, and is powered by an onsite wind turbine and photovoltaic panels.

The UAE is a key focus market for the FUSO brand, and is serviced by a full range of products varying from light to heavy-duty trucks, as well as bus models such as the light-duty Rosa and the BA. The Canter trucks, which are exported as BU vehicles rom MFTBC’s Kawasaki Plant, have been maintaining top market share in the light-duty segment since their introduction. In 2020, Mitsubishi Fuso introduced an upgraded Canter which became the first series-produced light-duty #truck in the UAE to comply with Euro V emissions standards to overachieve on local regulations. The display of the all-electric eCanter at WETEX and the Station of the Future is a further statement of the FUSO brand’s commitment to technological leadership and the path toward a more sustainable tomorrow.
