Hino Trucks, a Toyota Group company, manufactures a lineup of Class 4-8 commercial trucks in the US. The company is developing electric trucks, which it hopes to bring into low-volume production by 2023. Now the truck-maker has introduced Hino INCLUSEV, a portfolio of end-to-end EV solutions that includes customer EV consulting, intelligent charging, warrantied infrastructure, 24/7 customer service and financing.
Partners in the program include ChargePoint, EnTech Solutions and Mitsubishi HC Capital America.
“Hino INCLUSEV eliminates the complexity, frustration and inferiority of searching out multiple third parties to achieve the needed solution,” said Glenn Ellis, Hino Trucks SVP of Customer Experience. “INCLUSEV is a solutions portfolio poised for evolution and expansion through innovation, integration and partnerships.”
Charging network operator ChargePoint will offer end-to-end electrification services, from deployment to on-going support, to Hino customers. Infrastructure solution provider EnTech Solutions will provide design work, installation and management.
“Hino INCLUSEV keeps the dealer and customer unified through the ownership journey, leveraging Hino Truck’s leadership in delivering the Ultimate Ownership Experience,” said Hino Director of Brand Experience Dominik Beckman. “Our dealers are engaged every step of the way and consult with customers from start to finish. Our dealers will help determine if EV is the right solution for a fleet and if so, support in setting up what is needed—including a site evaluation, charging solution spec’ing, grant applications, end-to-end financing, installation, maintenance, optimization and service. Our dealer network is fully equipped to ensure businesses can be electrified seamlessly. This is turnkey in its truest form.”
