Hino Trucks announces expansion into the electric vehicle market.

Hino Trucks to launch Me Series and Le Series electric trucks in 2024, with a nationwide dealer network prepared for EV transition.

Hino Trucks has made a major announcement at the NTEA Work Truck Week in Indianapolis. The company revealed that it will be expanding its product range to include electric vehicles, with the launch of the Me Series and Le Series. These electric versions of Hino’s popular M- and L-Series medium-duty trucks will be available in 2024.

The Me Series and Le Series will be powered by SEA Electric’s SEA-Drive power system, which Hino is integrating into its production process. The new vehicles will offer a sustainable and eco-friendly solution for customers looking to reduce their carbon footprint. The Hino Class 5 M5e cab over and Class 6 L6e conventional models were unveiled during the show, and they come equipped with battery capacities of 138kwH and 220kwH respectively.

The move towards electric vehicles is part of Hino’s commitment to sustainability and reducing emissions. With the new Me Series and Le Series, the company is hoping to meet the growing demand for clean transportation solutions. The electric trucks are designed for urban delivery, short-haul, and last-mile applications, and they will provide customers with a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles.

Hino Trucks’ nationwide dealer network is ready for the forthcoming shift towards electric vehicles. With high-voltage training from Hino’s previous hybrid product, each dealer is well-equipped to safely and efficiently service electric vehicles. Hino Trucks is also investing in building infrastructure to support the EV transition, with Hino INCLUSEV. This premier portfolio of end-to-end electric vehicle enablement is exclusively available through Hino’s nationwide dealer network, providing a customer-centric, dealer-unified solution for EV enablement. Hino INCLUSEV includes consulting, sales, infrastructure, single-source financing, support, and service, offering a comprehensive solution for customers looking to transition to electric vehicles.

Glenn Ellis, President of Hino Trucks, said: Starting in 2024, Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) mandates are starting to kick off in California which are growing the demand for electric vehicles (EV), and many of our customers want to add EV’s 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.
