MEDAN, NETRALNEWS.COM - PT Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian Motors (KTB) as authorized distributor of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation (MFTBC), together with PT Sumatera Berlian Motor as official dealer of Mitsubishi Fuso, participated in Medan Automotive Week held on May 17-21, 2017 at Santika Dyandra Convention Center, Medan, featuring six units of Colt Diesel.

Sumatra becomes one of the areas with the largest contribution to overall sales of Mitsubishi Fuso reaching 29.5 percent, nation-wide.

KTB believes the market in North Sumatra will continue to increase, considering the plantation sector, especially palm oil begins to continue to grow. 

Sales data on Mitsubishi Fuso in January-April 2017 stood at 13,041 units, up 22 percent over the previous year.

To target the palm oil sector, Mitsubishi Fuso offers the Colt Diesel SHD-X 6.666 model specialized for climbing.

The advantage of this variant is located in the Final Gear Ratio at 6,666, so more reliable when passing through off-road terrains like in oil palm plantations.

Meanwhile Colt Diesel FE 74 Special Edition Gold Cabin is a special variant that was deliberately produced to celebrate the achievement of one million units. FE 71 Long variant is suitable for business people engaged in the distribution because with a longer chassis the truck can carry more cargo.

FE 84 BC variant is a variant that is destined for the public transportation sector or tourism. There are also two variants of Colt Diesel FE 74 HDV Dump Truck which can be used for mining and infrastructure.

Booth of Mitsubishi Fuso will also be filled with some interesting performances, including live acoustic band that will cover the songs of Iwan Fals, brand ambassador of Mitsubishi Fuso in Indonesia.

Taurus P. Sali, Branch Manager of PT Sumatera Berlian Motor, said that the event becomes one series of events with 'Mitsubishi Fuso Gathering' to be held in the same place on May 23, 2017. (*)
