Hino gears up for robust market  with new Euro 4-powered fleet

HINO MOTORS Philippines (HMP) kicks off 2018 with a new line of trucks and buses running on Euro 4 engine.

An affirmation of its commitment to deliver Total Support to Filipinos, the company’s shift to the Euro 4 emission standard complies with government regulations while responding to the industry’s call for innovative transport solutions. Powered by Euro 4 engines, Hino’s new lineup of vehicles promise increased engine durability at greater cost efficiency and less carbon footprint.

The Euro 4-compliant fleet includes refrigerated van, cargo crane, dump truck, cab & chassis truck, tractor head, wing van, Cerito bus, Grandeza bus and a modern Hino jeepney, the Hino Jeepney Class 3 AC. The new modern jeepney is part of the prototype for the government’s public utility vehicle (PUV) modernization program. Designed like a mini bus, this Hino jeepney has a 23 person seating capacity.

“We are very excited to share our latest vehicles with our valued partners. As a reliable one-stop shop, we are equipped to provide 360-degree support to all our clients’ trucking requirements—from assembly to chassis, body and, more importantly, aftersales and maintenance,” said HMP Chairman Vicente T. Mills, Jr.

With the Philippines’ aggressive infrastructure plan under the Duterte administration, the company sees continuous increase in trucking requirements, whether for brand-new trucks or for maintaining trucks. “The boom in infrastructure construction increases opportunities for transport businesses and truck and bus requirements over the next couple of years. The rise in domestic travel activities will also provide more impetus to the bus industry. Any increase in the movement of people will require the services of modern buses. Further, fleet replacement in compliance with Euro 4 and such requirements will translate into more sales,” Mills explained.

“Hino is honored to have been given the opportunity to incorporate this ecological innovation to the Hino quality of trucks and buses. As we affirm our commitment to supporting the community, we will continue to leverage our ability to assemble and distribute quality trucks and buses designed to address the different needs of Filipinos in the most efficient way possible,” HMP President Mr. Hiroshi Aoki said.

Hino envisions a more “connected community” and is keen to help people and goods go where they need to go. HMP has been engaged in the assembly and exclusive distribution of quality Hino trucks and buses in the Philippines for more than 40 years. Known for providing safe, durable and reliable trucks, HMP meets the transport needs of businesses ranging from small and medium enterprises to big corporations.
