GAC showcases Narrow Cab Canter at BIG Show


General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributors of Fuso Trucks in Oman, showcased three of its newest vehicles at the 2013 edition of the BIG Show held at the Oman International Exhibition Centre.

The models on display included the 26 seater Mitsubishi Rosa Bus, Canter Long wheel base Narrow Cab and Canter short wheel base Narrow Cab.

A UFI-approved event, The BIG Show, which pioneered the building, construction, housing, and infrastructure shows in the sultanate, was held from March 17 to 20 at the Oman International Exhibition Centre. Formerly a three-day event, its tenth edition was a four-day show, in response to the popularity the show has enjoyed since its inception.

General Automotive Company also showcased their newly introduced, narrow cab versions of the Canter light duty truck. The regular Canter is designed to achieve lowest total cost of ownership through its new integrated powertrain, enhanced product durability, higher payload capacity and extended maintenance interval.

The new Narrow Cab Canter offers all of this, but in a slimmer more ‘city-friendly’ package that enhances the truck’s manoeuvrability and convenience.

It is designed specifically for street driving and city usage and its narrow cab design is perfectly suited to navigate through tight and narrow back lanes, offering easy access to previously hard-to-reach locations.

Commenting on the Fuso commercial vehicles showcased at the BIG Show, Mark Tomlinson, General Manager of General Automotive Company said “General Automotive Company is proud to bring the all-new Fuso Canter narrow cab light-duty truck to Oman and to participate in this important commercial event. The City Canter is the ideal commercial vehicle for inner city use and its narrow profile allows for easy access along tight city streets. This has made it a remarkable entry in other markets, and we’re already seeing a popular response here in Oman.”
