Mitsubishi Embraces the Technology for Idle Reduction+
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America and first-time ACT Expo exhibitor eNow have a new strategic partnership to offer a range of solar-based auxiliary power system options for the OEM’s Canter FE/FG Series medium-duty commercial trucks.
Applications range from 30-watt systems to help keep batteries charged, to 6,400-watt systems capable of powering liftgates and refrigeration systems. The eNow solar-power options are designed specifically for the truck transport industry, and can help owners comply with idling and emissions regulations.
Fuso made the announcement on June26.
‘Great Economic Sense’
“Our new partnership with eNow is another step in assuring our customers have access to vehicles that consistently offer lower cost-of-ownership, while maintaining as small an environmental footprint as is practical,” Mitsubishi Fuso Truck president and CEO Todd Bloom said in a release.
“In this case, environmentally sound technology also solves specific operating issues for some of the auxiliary equipment our customers install on their trucks.”
“This new partnership further expands the availability of our sun-powered technology to the commercial transportation industry,” said Jeff Flath, CEO of Rhode Island-based eNow.
“It’s a move that makes great economic sense and helps efforts to reduce targeted emissions.”
The eNow systems are be available through more than 200 Mitsubishi Fuso dealers in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
