Mitsubishi Fuso Canter FE130 available with Supreme FiberPanel HoneyComb body

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc. (MFTA) announced that its 2015 Canter FE130 medium-duty work truck (13,200-lb. GVWR) is now available with a Supreme FiberPanel (HC) HoneyComb dry van body.

The Class 3 Canter FE130 features a body/payload capacity of up to 7,975 lbs. When the Supreme body is installed on the FE130, the total body/payload advantage jumps to nearly 1,000-lb., compared to the previous model.

According to Supreme, a 14-ft. FiberPanel HC body with composite rear rollup door weighs 288 lb. less than a 14-ft. box made of standard fiberglass-reinforced plywood (FRP). And that weight savings translates directly to more payload.

According to Leighton Good, MFTA’s manager, product and applications, “We are always looking for ways to reduce cost-of-ownership for our FUSO owners. Our efficient frame design and use of lightweight structural technologies throughout the chassis help increase the Canter’s payload compared to competitive trucks. By adding this new Supreme FiberPanel HC body, we can boost payload capacity even more—allowing our customers to haul more per trip. And that helps them reduce their truck transport costs.”

The FiberPanel HC body is available in 12-, 14- and 16-ft.  lengths, with 96 in. width and interior heights of 85 in., 91 in. or 97 in.
