Mitsubishi plans to boost European sales of its Canter small truck by adopting the engine-ahead-of-driver 'semi-cab' layout popular on the continent. The Canter currently has what Mitsubishi calls a 'full-cab' layout where the driver sits above the engine. This design is popular in Japan for both light trucks and one-box vans, like Mitsubishi's L300, because vehicles take up less road space in relation to a given load capacity.
