Hino Goes Euro 4 for Heavy-Duty Trucks
Hino Motors Philippines (HMP) launches its new Euro 4 emissions compliant heavy-duty trucks that aims to meet the growing demand of the country’s trucking industry. These trucks provide businesses across the country with more options to address their logistical requirements and expand or upgrade their fleet.
The new heavy-duty trucks from HMP consist of the SS2P, SH2P, FS2P and FY2P models.
The SS2P is a 6-wheeler truck with a high roof, 60-ton gross combined weight and 40- to 45-ton pulling capacity. The SH2P is another high-roof 6-wheeler truck but with 45.5 ton gross combined weight and 30- to 35-ton pulling capacity. The SS2P and SH2P trucks feature 16-speed transmission and 12-speed transmission, respectively.
The FS2P comes in two models: the FS2PMUM with 33.1-ton gross vehicle weight and the FS2PMUD with 32.3-ton gross vehicle weight. Both are 10-wheeler trucks with 12-speed transmission and standard roof. The FS2PMUM comes with a 9 cubic-meter mixer body while the FS2PMUD has a 15 cubic-meter dump body.
The FY2P heavy-duty trucks are available in three variants: the FY2PUUM, FY2PWUD, and FY2PYUA. The first two have standard roofs while the last has a high roof. All are 12-wheeler trucks with 12-speed transmission and 39.4-ton gross vehicle weight. The FY2PUUM features a 10 cubic-meter mixer body and CBU chassis, and the FY2PWUD has a 20 cubic-meter dump truck body. The FY2PYUA features a 32-foot OAL body for cargo requirements.
Built to deliver optimum performance, the new line of heavy-duty trucks from HMP are designed for different applications and logistics needs. The trucks are likewise equipped to deliver greater customer experience.
Seeing the Philippines as a key market for HMP, the company continues to expand its line of trucks and buses to cater to the different markets in the country. It launched its models with P11C Engine last year to reinforce its position in the mid-range segment. The heavy-duty trucks, meanwhile, target businesses with heavier requirements and those involved in development projects, which are expected to increase in number on the back of the government’s Build, Build, Build program.
“We remain firm in our commitment to offer only the right and good-quality products and services to meet the right requirements of our customers and partners. Hino is zealous to growing its business in the Philippines, which is one of the fastest-growing markets globally in this industry,” said HMP Chairman Mr. Vicente T. Mills, Jr.
“It is during these times of growth and changes that it is even more important to have a secure, reliable and efficient logistics partner for businesses to survive. Rest assured that Hino will continue to develop and deliver technologies and upgrade its products to meet your every truck and bus requirement,” said HMP President Mr. Hiroshi Aoki.
