  1. This is confusing. So CATS now sells FUSO trucks, which is also being sold by Mitsubishi Philippines? They're obviously not working together right?

    1. Fuso is sold not by Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, but by Sojitz Fuso. They've split already from the automotive business.

      Fuso, as a brand, is owned by Daimler so it makes sense for them to share showroom space with their sister, Mercedes-Benz Truck brand.

    2. Thanks for the clarification
