Fuso’s global sales figures showed an 18 per cent growth in 2012. The Japanese truck manufacturer sold approximately 174,600 commercial vehicles.
Fuso says that the increase in sales is on track with its “Fuso 2015” growth strategy, which the company aims at medium-term sales of more than 200,000 commercial vehicles per year in the international markets.
According to Fuso, the international markets outside Japan are well represented with 139,600 trucks and buses sold and a sales plus of 15 per cent. Sales were strongly driven by continued growth in Southeast Asia, the largest export market of the brand, as well as in the Near and Middle East and Africa.
Fuso also plans 40 market launches in 2013.
