Hino Trucks introduces EV enablement solutions

Hino Inclusev, available from the company’s nationwide dealer network, offers EV consulting, intelligent charging solutions, warrantied infrastructure and more.

Hino Trucks—a Toyota Group company based in Novi, Michigan—has introduced Hino Inclusev, a portfolio of end-to-end electric vehicle (EV) enablement solutions. Exclusively available from Hino’s nationwide dealer network, Inclusev includes customer EV consulting, intelligent charging solutions, warrantied infrastructure, Hino electric trucks in development, 24-hour customer service and more.

Dominik Beckman, director of brand experience for Hino, says of the new product, “A first-of-its-kind solution, Hino Inclusev keeps the dealer and customer unified through the ownership journey, leveraging Hino Truck’s leadership in delivering the ultimate ownership experience. Unlike other programs, our dealers are engaged every step of the way and consult with customers from start to finish.”

He adds, “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 turn-key in its truest form.”

The program is enabled by a collaboration of “innovative front-runners” in electric vehicle solutions that have teamed up with Hino Trucks, according to the company. These collaborators include ChargePoint, EnTech Solutions and Mitsubishi HC Capital America.

“Minimizing touchpoints by being centralized around the customer and dealer, Hino Inclusev uniquely eliminates the complexity, frustration and inferiority of searching out multiple third parties to achieve the needed solution,” says Glenn Ellis, Hino Trucks senior vice president of customer experience. “Inclusev is a solutions portfolio poised for evolution and expansion through innovation, integration and partnerships.”

As part of Hino’s partnership with ChargePoint, a Campbell, California-based electric charging solution company, customers have access to one of the largest open charging networks in the U.S. and end-to-end electrification services from deployment to ongoing support.

Meanwhile, Menasha, Wisconsin-based EnTech Solutions—a full solution provider for EV infrastructure—works to ensure customers’ systems are operating at the highest efficiency. In addition, their charging solutions are scalable and can grow as operations expand.

The final component of Hino’s Inclusive program is financing provided by Mitsubishi HC Capital America, Norwalk, Connecticut. As a long-time partner of Hino Trucks, Mitsubishi HC Capital America provides a collaborative, partnered approach to developing highly customized programs. They offer a single source of financing for the entire supply chain of EV transition from dealer site assessment and infrastructure development, to financing the vehicle for the end customer.
