Benefits of Owning a Hybrid Truck

By employing a diesel electric Hybrid system, using a Euro 5 and EVV compliant 4L diesel engine matched to an auxiliary electric motor that is emission-free, the Hino Hybrid drive system significantly reduces exhaust tailpipe emissions when compared to a conventional diesel-engined truck. 

Compared to a conventional truck the Hino Hybrid emits significantly reduced emissions of:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Particulate matter
  • Nitrogen oxide

Hino Hybrid battery

All Hino hybrid 300 series trucks use a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery for their hybrid driveline systems. The majority of hybrid vehicles in the world today use NiMH batteries, and worldwide the same Toyota Group battery technology has been used in over 3 million Hybrid vehicles.

Hino’s nickel-metal hydride battery has the advantages of:

  • Proven reliability, safety and durability, even in high current applications
  • Resilience to overcharging
  • Low cost
  • Long life and maintenance free operation

The hybrid battery is covered by a Hino factory warranty for 5 years or 160,000km.

Clutchless operation

The Hino Hybrid 300 Series has no clutch pedal. The ProShift 5 automated manual transmission employs an electronic control unit to control the changing of gears and operation of the clutch.

When driven in the Drive (D) mode, the vehicle can be driven like a conventional automatic-transmission truck (easy two-pedal operation). In this mode gear changes are executed in accordance with driving conditions and hybrid system mode settings.

The operation of the hybrid drivetrain is optimised in this mode, contributing to significant fuel consumption savings.

Drivers may also select S (Sequential) mode, should they wish to select gears manually to suit their driving style, or to hold gears in circumstances such as long steep descents (requires low gear selection).

Hino’s ProShift AMT has been designed so that it is easy to drive, requires low maintenance, and provides long service life.


To reduce maintenance costs and make operating your Hino more efficient for owners, the Hybrid trucks have exactly the same regular service intervals and in workshop service times as the conventional 300 Series diesel-engine light duty trucks.

Key Servicing Features

  • The main electrical components (the motor, inverter and nickel-metal hydride battery) are maintenance free.
  • No additional service costs for the Hino Hybrid trucks and regular service intervals of 20,000km.
  • The same grade and quantity of engine oil, as well as the same filters as the 300 Series Hino truck.
