 Mitsubishi Fuso Super Great
image
The Super Great achieves high levels of safety, abundant space due its high roof cab, and superior ride comfort thanks to the air suspension-equipped cab. The cab's unique round cubic form and flush surfacing ensure the world's best aerodynamic performance. It has a good balance of properties, such as low fuel consumption, exhaust emissions, and noise, in combination with impressive power, cleanliness, and harmony between economic efficiency as an investment and the environment.
In particular, the following items were adopted as safety equipment; (1) SRS airbag system (the first time in a Japanese truck), (2) discharge headlamps (another Japanese first), (3) multi-display & voice alarm (VOIS: a world's first), (4) driving attention monitor (MDAS: a world's first), and (5) the uphill road start support system EZGO with an in-built unique parking support (parking safety) function.
