New 500 series to grow Hino SA’s market share significantly, says Trautmann

The new Hino 500 series should assist Hino South Africa (SA) to increase its share of the South African heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) market from 18% to around 22%, 23%, says Hino SA VP Ernie Trautmann. A new 6 X 4 model should also allow the new 500 series to “play in the extra-heavy commercial vehicle (EHCV) segment” – a move which could boost Hino SA’s market share in this segment from 4% to 6%, he adds.
