More than 1,000 in California, and a 9% COE Share Nationwide
Hino Trucks has enjoyed quiet success with its 195h COE – cab-over-engine – hybrid electric truck, placing upwards of 1,000 in California and more than 1,200 nationwide since sales commenced in 2013, says marketing and dealer operations VP Glenn Ellis. Hino has benefited from the California Air Resources Board’s Hybrid Voucher Incentive Program, and has in fact accounted for 82% of HVIP vehicle expenditures, he says.
Besides HVIP in California, voucher programs in New York State and the Chicago area have helped with Hino 195h deployments.
Sixth-Generation Hybrid Drive
The Hino 195h is powered by a diesel-fueled Hino J05E-TP 5L turbocharged engine producing 210 horsepower and 440 foot-pounds torque. A sixth-generation hybrid driveline has a 36-kilkowatt (48-horsepower) traction motor powered by a 288-volt nickel metal hydride battery.
The 195h has a six-speed automatic (and PTO-capable) Aisin A465 transmission.
The Hino hybrid was launched at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis in March 2011 (sales were delayed until 2013 because Japan’s tragic earthquake and tsunami took place scant days later).
Insight Telematics Across the Board in 2017
The 195hDC (double cab) was introduced at the Work Truck Show in 2013.
Ellis notes that Hino’s Insight telematics package, including remote diagnostics and case management capabilities, will be standard on all of its trucks in 2017. The company celebrated the grand opening of a new California parts distribution and training center in Ontario this past February.
