Hino is set to showcase its increasingly popular new Hino 500 Series Standard Cab range at the upcoming Brisbane Truck Show.
the new truck has already broken cover and is already in dealerships but Hino is using the major Australian truck expo to highlight the new truck along with the rest of its range.
“The new 500 Series Standard Cab is significant both for ourselves and the market here, as it sets new benchmarks for the medium duty sector not only in safety but also in comfort, technology, operational efficiency and its green credentials,” said Bill Gillespie, general manager of brand and franchise development for Hino Australia
“The interest at dealerships has been very strong so far, and we’re confident that the range, which stretches to 54 different specifications, will create a great deal of attention at the Show.
“Visitors to our stand will also go in the draw to win a fantastic unforgettable ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience, the details of which we’re keeping a surprise until the show. It should be a lot of fun.”
