Hino sets autumn launch for new Class 5 cabover trucks
Sep 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Hino Trucks new Class 5 195 and 195h COE (cab-over-engine) trucks will be arriving at qualified Hino dealerships across the nation in autumn 2012. Available with a Diesel (195) or Diesel-Electric Hybrid (195h) powertrain, the 19,500-lb GVW trucks feature 210 horsepower and 440 ft-lb of torque from Hino's 5-liter J05E Series engine.
The first diesel cab-over trucks will arrive to Hino dealers in August. Due to a limited supply of initial diesel-electric hybrid cab-over trucks, the release of these vehicles will begin in California in September. As more product becomes available in early 2013, a staged rollout for the remaining markets will be implemented.
Both COE models feature an ergonomically friendly wide cab with a North American standard 33-inch frame rail width, a 56,900-psi frame, and a standard center-mounted rear fuel tank. The cab's styling emphasizes aerodynamics and visibility with an angled windshield, narrow pillars, and rounded-radius curves. Inside, the new cab uses its increased width to provide room for drivers up to 6'-6" tall, seating for three, and a mobile workspace with organizational storage options.
In addition to a Diesel-Electric Hybrid option, the 195 model meets EPA 2010 emission regulations by using an optimized SCR system — with no credits required.
