Vehicles on exhibit

1. Vision F-CELL light-duty truck exploring fuel-cell technology

The Vision F-Cell is our concept of an electric truck that uses the power of a Fuel Cell as one option to extend the range of an electric vehicle. Fuso is a leader in electric trucks and was the first brand to launch an all-electric truck in small series production in 2017, the eCanter. Since then, more than 140 eCanters have been delivered to customers in Japan, Europe and the United States. With the Vision F-Cell, a fully drivable concept model, we explore the benefits of fuel cell technology for use in our vehicles.
