Hino Trucks' 2013MY Class 5 195h diesel electric cabover has been approved by the California Air Resources Board and is eligible for the California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project.


HVIP is an incentive program created by CARB to accelerate the California deployment of hybrid and zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles and vehicle technologies. The HVIP provides vouchers to help California fleets purchase an eligible truck or bus to further build the market by reducing the costs of these vehicles for fleets that purchase and operate the vehicles in the state.

This provides a public benefit by helping commercialize these technologies and support a critical ramp-up in production that is necessary to meet California's clean air goals.

"California customers will take delivery of the first diesel electric 195h vehicles in November," said Glenn Ellis, Hino vice president of marketing.

Hybrid and electric trucks and buses are fairly new technology and are therefore more expensive than traditional vehicles, especially in the early market years when production volumes are low. CARB recognizes that these vehicles have the proven ability to reduce criteria and greenhouse gas pollutants and aims to accelerate the penetration of these cleaner vehicles to meet state clean air regulations and climate change goals.
