Fuso notches second record year of sales as supply improves 20th January 2023 Tags:

Fuso is confident it can maintain momentum following a record sales year in 2022 thanks to improving supply.

The Japanese manufacturer was able to record an all-time truck and bus sales record of 5319 units last year despite wide-ranging supply issues. That represents a second consecutive yearly sales record for Fuso Australia.

The Fuso team is excited that it can continue delivering for its customers thanks to improved production of key models, with strong supply of Canter truck and Rosa bus models.  

Fuso Truck and Bus Australia Director, Alex Müller, says Fuso is looking forward to a strong 2023 as it works to fulfill the high level of orders placed. 

“Fuso is delighted to be able to support our customers with better supply of key models from Japan, especially our iconic Canter truck and Fuso light bus,” Mr Müller says.

“We respect the hard work our customers do every day and are proud to offer them the best products, solutions and aftersales support through our strong Fuso dealership network,” he adds.

Fuso is especially focused on delivering trucks to customers who are keen to take advantage of end-of-financial-year tax benefits that require delivery before June 30.  

The heavy-duty Fuso Shogun is currently more popular than ever. It almost doubled its volume in 2022 and recorded its best-ever monthly sales result of 72. This is despite supply issues that continue to affect some Shogun and Fighter models. Boosting interest in the Shogun range was the well-received Shogun 510 13-litre heavy-duty model; the most powerful Japanese truck available in Australia. 

Interestingly, many Shogun customers are new to the Fuso brand and are attracted by the quality of the truck as a well as the aftersales support, which includes a generous warranty (five years or 500,000km, whichever comes first) and long service intervals. Fuso is the only truck brand to offer a manufacturer warranty program across its entire range that covers the truck for five years (or various mileage limits, whichever comes first).   

The Rosa light bus is also performing strongly with sales up more than 50 per cent from 2021. It is particularly popular with tourism operators and education providers attracted by the unmatched 25-seat capacity option and the class-leading advanced safety features.

Unlike its rivals, the Rosa features radar Advanced Emergency Braking, which can perform automatic emergency braking for moving pedestrians and vehicles. It also has Lane Departure Warning System, Electronic Stability Program, anti-skid disc brakes, a driver and front passenger airbag, height adjustable LED headlights, Hill Start Assist and a reversing camera.
