New and Used Hino Profia for Sale Philippines
Looking for a tough truck with a lot of heart? Then we highly recommend you check out the Hino Profia. Under this truck’s intimidating presence lies a heavy-duty engine that not only performs effectively, but also cares for the environment as well. Unlike other manufacturers that create genetic trucks that serve their purpose to a satisfying degree, the Hino Profia has been doing that while creating low-emission range trucks ever since it was launched early in 2000. Hino does it by creating a diesel electric Hybrid system that uses an emission-free, auxiliary electric motor to significantly help in lessening the exhaust tailpipe emissions compared to other conventional diesel trucks in the market today.
Moreover, Hino uses Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), an exhaust that has been treated to reduce -- or even eradicate harmful Nitrogen Oxides from exhaust gases. Its Diesel Particulate Active Reduction System (DPR), is an exhaust filtration system that uses as ceramic filter to automatically self-clean and trap around 95% of the exhaust's carbon soot. The ceramic filter also helps reduce the need to manually regenerate the filtration system. Truly, Hino’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility makes it quite impressive, to say the least.
This Japanese manufacturer of diesel engines (such as buses, trucks, and other vehicles) and commercial vehicles, is one of the 16 major companies of the Toyota Group. It is a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, and the 2 and 4 ton engines for Toyota Dyna and Toyota Ace are manufactured by Hino as well. This company has been manufacturing diesel trucks, buses and other vehicles since 1973, and was the first one to bring out emission-free trucks and other cutting-edge, environmentally-correct engines for trucks and buses.
Located in Hino-shi, Tokyo, the Hino Profia was first marketed as Super Dolphin from 1981 to 1992, renamed to Super Dolphin Profia from 1992 to 2003, and was then renamed to Profia in 2003. It is the leading medium and heavy-duty diesel trucks producer in Asia, and was introduced in the Philippines in 2007. It offers the standard cab worldwide, while the crew cab is available in Australia only.
