The Mitsubishi Canter also known as the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter is a line of small to medium-sized trucks and buses that have been in production since 1963. In Kenya, the Mitsubishi Canter is the most popular truck and its renown for being reliable and hardy. In fact, the Canter is synonymous with small trucks so much that any truck of its size is simply referred to as a Canter. These trucks have been hauling luggage on our roads for many years and they are favored by small and large businesses alike.
