Mitsubishi Fuso Canter is a line of light-duty commercial vehicle produced by Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation since 1963. The Canter nameplate was first introduced in March 1963 for the existing T20 range of light-duty trucks. The preceding series originated with the "T710" of 1960. In many markets the Canter was very expensive and was replaced by the Mitsubishi Fuso Truck when that model became available for worldwide market in the early 1980s.
Australia was another important market for the Canter - to the extent that it was manufactured there from the 1970s using many local components. European sales began in the Benelux countries in the late 1970s. Most models of the truck are distinguishable by a front 'Canter' badge, but the common Mitsubishi badge is usually used on the rear. In late 2005, a new Canter was presented, with safety being the main issue. Also a new hybrid truck, the Canter Eco Hybrid was presented commercially.
The European market is supplied exclusively with Canter vehicles from the Mitsubishi Fuso assembly plant in Tramagal (Portugal). Currently engines by Fiat Powertrain Technologies and transmission by ZF Friedrichshafen are installed in Canter vehicles since 2009. To comply with the rules in force in Japan from 2015 stricter emission standards, now, all Canter models use the same 4-stroke, water-cooled, turbocharged, intercooled DOHC4 FPT Industrial F1C diesel engine as the Fiat Ducato and Iveco Daily, and are sold in all markets.
