The new Euro V compliant medium-duty Fighter vehicle for GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) markets has been announced by Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation.
With this deployment, Euro V technology will be accessible in both the light and medium-duty divisions of the FUSO lineup in the region.
The new medium-duty Fighter is available in GVWs ranging from 10.4 to 17.1 tonnes and is designed to assist a wide range of industries, including consumer product distribution and construction.
It teams a durable, stable frame with the 6-cylinder 6M60 engine that gives operators endurance, torque, and agiility as a built-up vehicle from MFTBC’s Kawasaki facility.
With the redesigned engine, the car also achieves better fuel efficiency, with a 60 percent decrease in greenhouse gas emissions and an 80 percent decline in particle emissions.
The Euro V Fighter, which has already been adopted in Qatar, will be presented in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Kuwait in the coming months.
The rollout coincides with the region’s projected implementation of more rigorous emissions rules; Qatar aims to impose Euro V standards for vehicles beginning in 2023.
In the UAE, Oman, as well as Qatar, light-duty canters, which are Euro-compliant, are already available.
The GCC countries have been fast to include sustainability goals into their national policies. Qatar announced an action plan to tackle climate change last year, with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by about 25% until 2030.
Saudi Arabia has also stated that it intends to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2060. MFTBC will continue to assist these pledges and businesses throughout the world with its proven technology as economies of the world convert their sectors to more environmentally aware routes.
