Hino Trucks to add EVs to its product portfolio

The Hino Class 5 M5e cab over and Class 6 L6e conventional models have battery capacities of 138kwH and 220kwH.

Hino Trucks has announced an expansion of its product range to include electric vehicles. Hino Trucks will offer an electric version of its M- and L- Series medium-duty trucks branded Me Series and Le Series available in 2024. Hino Trucks will begin production of these new vehicles integrating SEA Electric‘s SEA-Drive power system.

The Hino Class 5 M5e cab over and Class 6 L6e conventional models come equipped with battery capacities of 138kwH and 220kwH, respectively.

“Starting in 2024, Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) mandates are starting to kick off in California which are growing the demand for electric vehicles (EVs), and many of our customers want to add EVs to evaluate operational capabilities. Over the past several years, we have made significant strides in the push toward electrification. This strategic collaboration with SEA Electric is part of our plan to provide powertrain options to meet the needs for our customers and markets throughout the United States,” said Glenn Ellis, president of Hino Trucks.

Hino Trucks says its national dealer network is prepared for the coming changes. Each dealer is high-voltage trained from Hino’s previous hybrid product and is capable of servicing electric vehicles safely and efficiently. To further complement the EV transition, Hino Trucks says it is building infrastructure to support these trucks with Hino InclusevV, a portfolio of end-to-end electric vehicle enablement exclusively available through Hino’s nationwide dealer network. This is an end-to-end EV enablement solution that includes consulting, sales, infrastructure, single-source financing, support and service, the company says.
