Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Hino in the UAE, has announced the launch of the redesigned medium duty Hino 500 Series truck, the company’s second launch in a few months, following the introduction of the Hino 300 series hybrid.

With companies increasingly aware of the need to reduce emissions and reliance on fossil fuels, the Hino 500 Series also maximizes efficiency and significantly reduces consumption thanks to class-leading engine and transmission choices.
