Kawasaki, Japan – Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, announced today that the 2019 model year Aero Queen large coach bus won the Good Design Award. With the body wrapped up in an elegant design, it features friendliness for pedestrians, the elderly and children alike albeit its cutting-edge silhouette.
The Aero Queen achieves safety, comfort and economy thanks to various in-vehicle safety devices. Besides these excellent safety features, its revamped exterior sports Fuso’s new design identity “Fuso Black Belt” and new LED headlamp and fog lamp.
