Forthcoming 700 Series touted as safest ever by Hino

The all-new 700 Series heavy-duty model due for local release in June will boast the most comprehensive safety package ever offered in a Hino truck for the Australian market.

The truckmaker made the claim in a statement it issued today regarding the newest addition to its range of light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles.

The all-new Hino 700 Series models, said Hino, will feature a Pre-Collision System with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Vehicle Stability Control, LED Headlamps and Daytime Running Lamps plus a suite of additional safety features.

This comprehensive safety package, Hino SmartSafe, features driver-assist technology which according to Hino takes an active focus on protecting the lives of drivers, passengers and other road users.

“At Hino Australia, safety is a central design principal and the all-new 700 Series is no exception,” said Hino Australia Manager of Product Strategy, Daniel Petrovski.

“It will answer a lot of the major safety issues that confront the transport industry and other road users with the implementation of the advanced driver assist technology known as Hino SmartSafe,” he said.

The company said further details of the all-new 700 Series will be revealed closer to its launch date in June this year.
