The light duty truck for the new age
There are solid reasons why the HINO 300 series is able to drive nimbly around town and powerfully on the highway. The truck is equipped with the latest N-series engine that delivers both environmental performance and abundant power; a newly developed transmission that improves driving performance and fuel consumption; and an aerodynamic styling which has been designed based on numerous wind tunnel tests. Its form, devoid of all redundancy and yet dynamic, makes thorough use of ﬂush surfaces with its smooth front face design and one-piece press molded door. These features not only contribute to driving performance, but also improve fuel efﬁciency and reduce wind noise. By bringing together these elements that are underpinned by HINO’s innovative technologies, the HINO 300 series is able to deliver smart and powerful driving performance.
Its body embodies HINO’s commitment to safety
HINO’s commitment to developing a safety system that provides both active safety for preventing accidents from occurring and passive safety to ensure safety in the event of an accident also comes from its philosophy. The glass area has been increased to secure a wider ﬁeld of vision and wide angle mirrors are used. The steering wheel is designed to absorb impact energy during head-on collision and all models are ﬁtted with steering columns that collapse forward to reduce the force of impact. We have also enlarged the door beam to secure the driver’s survival space. As you can see, the HINO 300 series is equipped with numerous features that derive from its safety philosophy.
Careful attention to ease of inspection and maintenance
The HINO 300 series employs a forward tilting cab that allows for easy maintenance and inspections. It also features an air ﬁlter that is easy to remove. Other careful attention to ease of inspection and maintenance is also evident in the brake ﬂuid and washer ﬂuid tanks that are ﬁtted inside the cab for easy inspection.
