The newly improved HINO 300 series exclusively focuses on safety and power improvement features. Equipped with a common rail engine, the new HINO 300 Series sees an increase in power thus offering the highest HP extra load handling. This gives highly efficient fuel injection due to extremely short spraying distances and multiple injection points. Using Euro 3 emission standard, it gives high engine power and smooth running with low consumption and emissions.
The new HINO 300 series is also in compliant with government directions for road safety, the latest United Nation Regulation (UNR) by the JPJ (Jabatan Pengakutan Jalan) Malaysia.
Speaking at the event, Managing Director of HMSM, Mr. Ken Iwamoto said,” PUTTING SAFETY FIRST is our priority in order to avoid any road traffic accidents that could harm other road users. Beyond the enormous harm road traffic crashes have caused, it could drive a family into poverty should they lose their family’s breadwinner. Moreover, it is worrying that the after-effect, such as long-term depression, could be triggered from the medical expenses the witnesses’ family have to bear.”
Hence, all the upgraded models are equipped with Antilock Braking System (ABS), which increases braking efficiency. The ABS helps drive maintain the control of the vehicle when braking on slippery surfaces. Besides that, the new HINO 300 Series is equipped with several special safety features such as wide view pillars (65 mm) for wide cab to ensure a nearly uninterrupted forward view, allowing the driver to easily spot pedestrians and cyclists. Naturally, this was done without posing a compromise in structural integrity.
Moreover, it comes with 3-Point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) Seat Belt which is activated instantly when tension is applied upon collision to improve the belts restraining performance and energy absorbing steering to enhanced cabin's safety. Furthermore, these models are equipped with door beams whereby high-strength steel reinforcements are included in the doors to help prevent harm to occupants in the event of a side collision.
On top of it, the new models of HINO 300 Series come with an overhead console which allows easy access. To top it off, it has roof top markers which provide visual cues as to where the end points of the vehicle are. Moreover, on Wide Cab models, the manual transmission shift lever has been moved rearwards by 18 mm to free up more space for one's legs when moving across the cabin. The shift lever material has been changed from resin to aluminium for a smoother feel. Furthermore, the shift boot has been redesigned for a more attractive appearance. As for the standard cab models, the shift position remains unchanged but the instrument panel design has been modified to increase knee and foot clearance.
HINO 300 Series latest line-up offers the best solutions for small to medium sized businesses where each of the models caters to specific segments in the Malaysian market. Business owners or truck drivers also could achieve satisfaction from the vehicle performance and various promotional services that they will be entitled to with the purchase of the new lunched HINO 300 Series:
