Hino 300 Series gets an upgrade

The Hino 300 Series will now receive a range of safety, driveability, comfort and environmental upgrades.

Thanks to the added feature of a Diesel Particulate Active Reduction System (DPR), the entire Hino 300 Series range, hybrids and diesels, will meet ADR80/30 (Euro 5) emission requirements.

The addition of this DPR system is designed to reduce particulates by over 95 percent. It features a ceramic honeycomb structure to trap particulate matter and incinerate it during the vehicle’s regular operation. This DPR technology by Hino has already been proven in Australia in around 150 Hino Hybrid 300 Series diesel-electric trucks.

Hino’s experience in this DPR technology began in Japan in the early 1990s for vehicles in use in metropolitan tunnel service applications; and has been standard on Hino Hybrids in Australia since 2007.

For additional safety and convenience, the Hino 300 Series also has power-operated and heated exterior mirrors, with a wider field of view from the spotter mirrors.

Hino 300 Series Wide Cab models have the added stability of front and rear stabiliser bars.

To add, all Hino 300 Series models are fitted with ABS brakes and electronic brake force distribution (EBD) as standard equipment. Hino 300 Series Standard cabin models feature a driver’s SRS airbag, while Wide cabin models offer both driver and passenger SRS airbags as standard equipment.

The 4500kg/5500kg GVM Hino 300 616 model now has a six-speed manual transmission in lieu of the previous five-speed manual transmission. This change sees all Hino Wide cabin models now featuring the six-speed transmission as standard equipment, bringing the added flexibility and drivability of the higher GVM models into the car licence segment for the first time.
