Hexagon Purus, a manufacturer of zero-emission mobility and infrastructure solutions, is in advanced discussions with Hino Trucks for a long-term distribution agreement under which the company expects to produce battery-electric heavy-duty trucks for the U.S. market, distributed through select dealers in Hino’s network.
The vehicles are expected to be based on Hino’s XL 4x2 tractor chassis and upfitted with Hexagon Purus’ zero-emission technology, including battery systems, auxiliary modules, power modules, and vehicle-level software. The potential agreement foresees the delivery of up to 10,000 trucks by 2030, and the total potential value over the course of the agreement could reach approximately $2 billion.
Serial production of the electric heavy-duty trucks would be expected to begin during the last part of 2024. This expanded agreement would replace the cooperation announced in February 2022 between Hexagon Purus and Hino to supply battery packs for multiple Hino truck platforms.
