Hino Trucks' new Class 5 195 and 195h COE trucks will be arriving at qualified Hino dealerships across the country this fall. Available with a Diesel (195) or Diesel-Electric Hybrid (195h) powertrain, the 19,500 -pound GVW trucks feature 210 horsepower and 440 pounds-feet of torque from Hino's 5-liter J05E Series engine.
Due to a limited supply of initial diesel-electric hybrid cab-over trucks, the release of these vehicles will begin in the state of California in September.

The first diesel cabover trucks will arrive to Hino dealers in August. Due to a limited supply of initial diesel-electric hybrid COEs, the release of these vehicles will begin in California in September. As more product becomes available in early 2013, a staged roll-out 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-feet-6-inches tall, seating for three and a mobile workspace with a variety of organizational storage options.

In addition to a Diesel-Electric Hybrid option, the 195 model meets EPA 2010 emission regulations by utilizing an optimized SCR system - with no credits required.

"During the past several months, the management team at Hino has monitored the truck market rebound, the U.S. economy and foreign currency exchange rates to develop a plan that supported its customers and dealers in the short term, while sustaining a business model for the long term," says Glenn Ellis, vice president of marketing. "With these factors in mind, the introduction of the cabover truck is on track."
