We are sure the FUSO brand will compliment their existing sales portfolio and look forward to a long and prosperous future together“
General Manager of M50 Truck & Van Centre; Glen Guildea added: “We believe that the niche product range FUSO offers, from 3.5 tonne to 7.5 tonne with an electric 7.5 tonne variant ties in well with our current business model and affords us an opportunity to step back into the truck market. We look forward to the challenges of the new era of electric vehicles and whilst the commercial market has been behind the curve on this when compared to the passenger car market, we firmly believe it will be the way forward for the Light goods vehicles of the future.“
