Hino brings next generation 500 Series to Australia

The next generation of the 500 Series Standard Cab models will arrive in November Hino Australia announced today.

First seen at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2017, the 500 Series Standard Cab FC, FD and FE models will undergo a next generation model change for the Australian market according to the manufacturer.

“The addition of this street smart new truck to the Hino Australia line-up less than two years after the successful launch of the 500 Series Wide Cab models will further expand and improve our product offering in the highly competitive medium duty category,” said Daniel Petrovski, Hino Australia Product Strategy Manager.

“Hino Australia will launch the all-new 500 Series Standard Cab with the most comprehensive active safety package offered by a Japanese manufacturer in the current Australian medium duty category market.”

Petrovski confirmed the 500 Series Standard Cab will feature additional transmission options and offer new power and torque ratings. He expects it will help create a range of driveline solutions designed to deliver the next level of driving performance and fuel efficiency.

“The all-new 500 Series Standard Cab will epitomise the Hino development philosophy of Quality, Durability and Reliability,” he said.

“With an all-new modern interior, we believe the Hino 500 Series Standard Cab will raise the bar for style and occupant comfort amongst the Japanese manufacturers.”

Full Australian specifications and pricing of the all-new 500 Series Standard Cabs FC, FD and FE models will be available in late November 2018 at dealerships nationwide Hino Australia said in a statement.

The 500 Series Standard Cab is a model, according to Petrovski, that has very strong historical significance for the Hino brand. He said the next generation ensures that the FC, FD and FE models continue to play a pivotal role within the Hino product offering.

“These new vehicles are designed to offer a combination of active safety, performance, efficiency comfort and reliability and will set new benchmarks for what Australian customers can expect from a medium duty Japanese truck,” he said.
