NEW MITSUBISHI FUSO CANTER FG 4X4
PETALING JAYA, Malaysia, 16 February 2012 — Mitsubishi Fuso introduced the Canter FG 4X4, the first four-wheel-drive truck in Malaysia.
The FG 4X4 is a new generation in the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter range, highlights improved safety, comfort and drivability, further expanding the versatility of the Canter range first unveiled in 1963.
“The roll-out of the Canter FG 4X4 marks a new milestone for the company as a pioneer distributor of the first four-wheel-drive truck in Malaysia,” said Roland S. Folger, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
“We had a great start to 2012 with the launch of three new models in our luxury passenger car range and are absolutely excited to welcome the Canter FG 4X4 which we expect will drive and extend the brand’s equity in the Malaysian truck sector while enhancing Fuso sales by 250 units this year,” he added.
A key feature of the FG 4X4 is its smooth-shifting manual transmission that when combined with the transfer case and front locking hubs, allows drivers the on-road economy of a two-wheel drive while simultaneously offering the versatility of a four-wheel drive when front hubs are manually locked.
Targeted at the agriculture and construction sectors, the FG 4X4 boasts of a compact yet extremely robust chassis and has excellent maneuverability on off-road conditions, crowded job sites and even while navigating tight plantations.
“Harsh road conditions, brutal weather and long-distance journeys to remote, hilly and uneven terrains are just some of the many situations faced by Malaysian truckers every day. Although common, these situations would be a nightmare to most without the support and reassurance of a reliable and versatile vehicle,” said Albert Yee, general manager.
The Fuso sales volume for this year is expected to grow by 40 percent and all the models are assembled at the Pekan plant.
The warranty offered in 40,000 or 2 years which ever comes first and the on-the-road price without insurance is RM131,000,-.
