DSNY runs first-in-U.S. Hino hybrid

Hino Trucks has brought its light-duty diesel hybrid cab-over (COE) to the United States for the first time, providing its hybrid to the New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY).

As part of its initiative to reduce operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions, DSNY has elected to run a Hino diesel hybrid COE for parts delivery. The Hino diesel hybrid COE has a gross vehicle weight rating of 14,500 lbs. and a 16’ van body.

“The Hino hybrid has been running a dedicated route supplying our service centers and has been performing very well,” said Rocco DiRico, deputy commissioner of support services for DSNY.
