Bidvest Australia, which runs a fleet of more than 400 trucks in all states and territories Australia-wide, has renewed its contract with Hino Motor Sales Australia for the third year running, according to Hino.
The renewal will add another 40 Hino trucks to its fleet during 2015–16, including models from the 300, 500 and 700 Series ranges. These include 300 Series Hybrids and the recently launched 500 Series FE 1426 Auto models, according to Hino.
The 500 Series FE 1426 Auto, with its J07E engine, combines a 260HP (191kW) and 794Nm matched to the Allison 2500 series automatic transmission.
The Hino 300 Series Hybrid features a Euro 5 and EVV compliant N04C diesel engine matched to an auxiliary electric motor, which assists in reducing exhaust tailpipe emissions and fuel consumption compared with a conventional diesel-engine truck.
