Hino makes reverse camera standard across range

Hino Australia has announced that by mid-2019 no new Hino will be sold in this country without a reverse camera.

The company claims to be the first truck manufacturer in Australia to offer this important safety feature as standard across its complete gamut of light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
First introduced as standard equipment on the Hino 300 Series models in 2016 and then on the 500 Series Wide Cab the following year, the reverse camera will be yet another standard element of the comprehensive safety package on the all-new 500 Series Standard Cab models, due for release in November this year.

The reverse camera includes both night vision capability plus a microphone to further assist drivers when manoeuvring the vehicles.

“Drivers will benefit from almost 360 degree vision for improved safety when manoeuvring so they can see and hear what is happening behind them when reversing, loading and unloading,” said Daniel Petrovski Hino Australia Manager of Product Strategy.

“This will be rolled out to the 700 Series within the first half of 2019 and is in addition to the already exceptional vision provided by the combination of generously sized windscreens, large electrically adjustable heated mirrors and convex spotter mirrors, which are standard on every Hino truck,” he said.

“The all-new street smart 500 Series Standard Cab will feature the most comprehensive active safety package offered by a Japanese manufacturer in the current Australian medium-duty category including Vehicle Stability Control and reverse camera.”
