Fuso E-Canter Launch Event đź—“

Monday 30 April

Predicting the future isn’t always easy. Not for Fuso London. Launching the world’s first fully electric-powered light truck at Printworks London, they revealed how utopian innovation can become concrete reality.

VIPs, media and industry experts enjoyed a first-look at the all-electric 7.5 tonne truck, the eCanter. As guests gathered in Printworks’ Vanway for the big-reveal, MD of Mercedes Benz and Fuso Trucks UK, Mike Belk spoke of Fuso’s ambition to participate in the active reduction of harmful pollutants. DPD, Hovis and Wincanton took delivery of the trucks, acting as early-adopters to showcase the eCanter in action. In one awe-inspiring moment, the trucks drove into Vanway, running through the dual presentation screens and down an aisle between the audience. Heightening the impactful scene, a live violinist accompanied the big reveal.

Potential customers and traders were offered the opportunity to test-drive the trucks for themselves. Trialling the eCanter in Printworks’ outdoor grounds, guests could envision the electric journeys of the future.

Printworks’ Publishing space offered an opportunity to take another look at the trucks in a detailed expo. With food and drink supplied by preferred partners Moving Venue, invitees could take time to discuss an exciting time of industry developments. Printworks’ vast industrial interiors became an ideal backdrop for taking-in eCanter’s innovative design in more detail.
