Next-generation vehicle development
Hino Motors will continue to meet the challenges of creating the next generation of vehicles with the aim of “reducing new vehicle CO₂ emissions while driving by 90%” .
Strength of electric vehicles x Social needs = Next-generation vehicles created by Hino
Utilizing the advantages of electric vehicles in response to various social needs, we develop "trucks and buses that do more," representing the next-generation standard.
We have developed a "electrification platform" that accommodates all power trains
We will develop a "electrification platform" compatible with all power trains (devices that transmit power to the wheels) that can be fitted in any electric vehicles.
*1 An inverter is a device required for operating a motor by changing its rotation speed.
*2 The power-generating device of a fuel cell vehicle (FCV).
*3 A range extender is a system consisting of an engine and a generator installed to extend continuous cruising distance.
Next-generation vehicles used in urban areas
We have developed three types of electric vehicle for in-city applications—the small EV bus, the low-floor light-duty EV truck, and the fuel cell bus—providing vehicles that are easier and more convenient than ever before.
