Hino Trucks is Cranking Up Production
Hino Trucks is gearing up its production of 2022 model year trucks for the US. These Class 6-8 trucks will be powered by diesel engines supplied by Cummins Inc. The new Hino L Series trucks will be available toward the end of 2021 and will be offered with 240 HP and 260 HP rated engines from Cummins. The XL Series model will roll out in 2022 with the Cummins L9 engine in three engine ratings 300 HP, 330 HP, and 360 HP.
Production of these new trucks will begin in Hino facilities in West Virginia and Woodstock. Hino and Cummins plan to evaluate additional opportunities to collaborate in the future.
Project Z Development Accelerates
Hino is using this opportunity to redirect development and engineering resources toward Project Z, the company’s battery-electric vehicles (BEV) zero-emissions vehicles (ZEV) projects. The plan is to begin production of the BEV models in Q4 of 2022 and ramp up production from there.
This is especially welcome in California, where vehicles are being incented to move away from fossil fuel powered toward low and zero emission electric in order to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.
HVIP (Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project) is preparing to open to new voucher requests later this spring. Stay tuned for updated information on this excellent incentive program.
Also, South Coast AQMD offers financial incentives to replace older heavy-duty diesels with cleaner technologies. You can learn more about this program HERE.
