The all-new Hino 700 is set to be Hino’s cleanest heavy duty truck according to the Japanese commercial vehicle maker.
Hino Australia this week confirmed its latest offering, set for launch in June, will meet Euro 6 exhaust emission standards and improve upon fuel efficiency thanks to design modifications.
“Like the 500 Series Standard Cab, the all-new Hino 700 Series will exceed the current Australian exhaust emission standards,” said Daniel Petrovski, Hino Australia Manager of Product Strategy.
“The all-new 700 Series will break new ground for Hino in terms of safety and environmental commitment, which are key features in today’s competitive marketplace,” he said.
Prompted in part by customer preference, Hino Australia has also confirmed its expanded range of all-new 700 Series trucks will be available exclusively with two-pedal transmissions.
“Built as a vehicle for today and for the future, the all-new 700 Series will offer customers the convenience of either a true automatic or an automated manual transmission, which are matched to their respective engine power ratings,” said Petrovski.
“Over the last 15 years, there has been a distinct shift away from manual transmissions towards two-pedal options.”
Hino, at present, is the only Japanese manufacturer to offer a true automatic transmission across its light, medium and heavy-duty model ranges.
More details about the all-new 700 Series will be released in the coming weeks.
