Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) showcased the latest FUSO trucks and bus models at the recent Philippine Bus and Truck Show 2016. Held at the SMX Convention Center, Manila, this year’s show was participated by numerous exhibitors from the Philippines, China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan attracting more than 10,000 visitors.
On center stage were the displays of the major commercial vehicle brands in the country led by MMPC with its FUSO Trucks and Bus display. The FUSO booth commanded the most attention among the event visitors given its strategic position at the entrance. Showcasing four (4) vehicles from the Light Bus, Light Duty Truck, Medium Duty Truck and Heavy Duty Truck segments, the MMPC booth occupied the largest area among the participants. The motorshow-grade quality of the display rightfully earned it the “Best Booth” award from the organizers.
Presented to the public were the classy 26-seater Rosa mini-bus configured as a School Bus complete with decals and stickers. A Canter FG83 4WD “Rescue Truck” proved popular among the visitors with its military-inspired body wrap and functional rescue accessories. An FM657 model (16,000 Kg GVW) with a new concept “curtain slider” type of rear body suggested a more cost effective way of transporting goods. Lastly, doing the heavy lifting was an FV517 “Super Great” Tractor model covered in colorful livery.
The 3 day event offered a good chance for both fleet customers and individual truck buyers to see and feel the trucks needed for their business. With the Philippine economy growing by leaps and bounds, demand for commercial vehicles will surely continue to expand. Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, now serving the Filipinos for more than 50 years, will be there to meet the demand of its customers for reliable, durable, high-quality Trucks and Buses anywhere in the archipelago. The FUSO trucks continue to be among the nation’s workhorses and will remain so in many years to come.
