Hino Trucks’ new Class 5 195 and 195h COE trucks will be arriving at qualified Hino dealerships across United States this fall.
The first diesel cab-over trucks will arrive to Hino dealers in August. Due to a limited supply of initial diesel-electric hybrid cab-over trucks, the release of these vehicles will begin in the state of California in September. As more product becomes available in early 2013, a staged roll out for the remaining markets will be implemented.
Available with a Diesel (195) or Diesel-Electric Hybrid (195h) powertrain, the 19,500 GVW trucks feature 210 HP and 440 lb-ft of torque from Hino’s 5-liter J05E Series engine.
The launch of this new cab-over product line offers Hino dealers an opportunity to reach new Customers.
“A successful launch of our new cab-over models is imperative to provide our customers and dealers with a competitive, world-class cab-over. Over the past several months, the management team at Hino has monitored the truck market rebound, the U.S. economy, and foreign currency exchange rates to develop a plan that supported our customers and dealers in the short term, while sustaining a business model for the long term. With these factors in mind, the introduction of the cab-over truck is on track,” said Glenn Ellis, Vice President of Marketing for Hino Trucks.
In addition to a Diesel-Electric Hybrid option, the 195 model meets EPA 2010 emission regulations by utilizing an optimized SCR system - with no credits required. For Hino Trucks, the ability to meet strict emissions and fuel efficiency guidelines affordably without compromising driving power and performance is important.
