Ramez Hamdan, general manager of Hino at Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “This year is proving very positive for Hino, as we continue to grow our market share and introduce new products that meet our customers’ needs. With companies increasingly aware of the need to reduce emissions and reliance on fossil fuels, the Hino 500 Series also maximizes efficiency and significantly reduces consumption thanks to class-leading engine and transmission choices.”

The medium duty Hino500 Series offers a wide possibility of applications, such as tipper trucks, curtain siders, reefer trucks as well as general cargo, making it a real all-rounder. The truck also features a range of safety features including ABS, Front Underrun Protection System (FUPS), Rear Underrun Protection System (RUPS) and much more.

Riding comfort is improved thanks to a semi-floating construction for the cab mount and mounting bushes, resulting in reduced road vibrations better ride comfort and reduced cabin noise.

The driver’s seat was also re-designed to better fit the driver’s body and alleviate fatigue over long-distance driving, while bed space for resting is located behind the seat.

The optimised cab provides better visibility, better arrangement of the instrument cluster and efficient air flow to keep cool in traffic.

“Providing a more comfortable driving experience is proven to reduce fatigue and in turn increase safety on the roads,” explained Hamdan. “The addition of redesigned multi-reflector headlights for better night visibility and the ergonomic LCD driver multi-information display also mean better road attentiveness under any driving condition.”
