Since its inception in 2017, the eCanter has assisted a variety of businesses with their logistics needs, including those in the fashion industry, furnishings sales, medical services, newspaper delivery, and food and entertainment.

Over 350 vehicles have been introduced throughout the US, Australia, Japan, Europe, and New Zealand, covering a total mileage of over 4.5 million kilometres in daily operations.

MFTBC previously stated that by 2039, it intends to power up all new designs for the Japanese market and expedite its transition to CO2-neutrality.

The firm has boosted its expenditure in EV infrastructural development as a result of this commitment. At the Kitsuregawa Proving Ground, MFTBC has been building high-voltage rapid chargers, an electric vehicle workshop, and battery test benches to disassemble and analyse lithium-ion batteries since 2021.

In the case of a natural disaster, the recently installed EV workshop also has a test rig to check the eCanter’s external power source functions.

Other existing facilities at Kitsuregawa have been established to analyse elevated EV components and verify electric truck driving functions.
