The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter (kana:三菱ふそう・キャンター) is a line of light-duty commercial vehicle by Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation. The range was primarily available in Japan and some other Asian countries, although it was also sold in the United States during the late 1980s and up current. Manufacturing began in 1962 with the first cars going to Asia. Other European and American countries which saw import or manufactures of the Canter included the Europe, Mid-east and North America. The Asia-Pacific was another market until the early 1970s. In many markets the Canter was very expensive and was replaced by the Mitsubishi Fuso Truck when that model became available for worldwide market in the early 1980s.
