Waukegan, IL ( July 27, 2011 - Many car companies have taken interest in green technology and have successfully incorporated it into their vehicle productions. Toyota, on the other hand, is taking it a step further: the Japanese automaker's commercial truck brand, Hino, will soon offer green cars by the end of this year. While Waukegan used car shoppers will undoubtedly be curious about this new fleet of vehicles, sales team members at Toyota dealerships in Libertyville will be excited to see the new adaptations.

The Hino hybrids will serve as utility vehicles that Waukegan used car owners have seen in the past, including urban delivery vans, dump trucks, stake beds, and bucket-lift trucks. Companies can expect to see a combination of Hino's 5.0L turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine with an electric motor that is sandwiched between the flywheel and the six-speed automatic transmission's torque converter. This combined equipment produces 258 horsepower and makes 690 pound-feet of torque.
What consumers may find most interesting is the electric motor, which gets its power from a 288-volt nickel-metal-hybrid battery pack that has been utilized in the Lexus LS600hL. The Hino hybrid trucks will also feature engine shutoff at idle and brake-regeneration systems.

While the hybrid technology will not enable the commercial trucks to achieve a fuel economy worthy of Prius comparison, it increases by about 30 percent. Seeing as gas prices are steadily rising, any company can benefit from improved fuel economy - especially cars with gas mileage that requires a larger wallet.

While consumers aren't usually interested in commercial trucks, interested company owners can visit their favorite Toyota dealership like Classic Toyota to learn more about the upcoming commercial hybrids.
