MotorCity BSC, the sole distributor of HINO trucks in the Kingdom of Bahrain, unveiled the new HINO 500 Series at an exclusive VIP launch at the Gulf Hotel. The event was attended by key customers, as well as HINO Motors and MotorCity senior management.
The New 500 Series, which leads the way towards the next generation of HINO technology, incorporates new approaches, including emotional elements throughout the development and manufacturing process. The aim is to enhance, not only the performance of each component but also assembly precision and overall product quality. All HINO trucks are designed based on their development concept of “Quality, Durability, and Reliability”.
The new 500 Series HINO trucks are enhanced with higher GVW (26 tonnes), stronger front axle capacities (7,500 kg), longer chassis (up to 7.4m), 6×4 chassis configurations, 40T GCM 4×2 tractor units, specially designed off road cabins, and full air brakes with ABS & Euro 3 engines with higher HP and torque. They are also now equipped with more safety specifications and comfort features such as a semi floating cab and air suspension driver’s seats which fit any body shape and ensure smoother and fatigue free driving even in off road conditions. The new seats provide additional riding comfort through an increased slide range that enables a greater range of driver heights to be accommodated.
The new 500 series with 6×4 configuration reduced the big gap between Medium duty and Heavy duty truck and it will be of big benefit to cost conscious customers and for construction industry where a higher capacity crane can be mounted on the product range.
MotorCity BSC Senior General Manager Dr. Bijan Majidi said: “HINO’s upgraded structure features longer cargo space, as well as improved payload, which increases its capacity, allowing it to carry more cargo loads, and boosts its ability to tackle the different logistical needs of the customer. Also, with our newly expanded service facilities in Ma’ameer, our trained service
The team is able to provide our customers with insightful knowledge of HINO technology and technical information to make the customer’s journey as efficient as possible.”
