A Brief History of Hino
Hino Motors is a Japanese manufacturer of commercial vehicles and diesel engines. The headquarters of Hino Motors is in Hino, Tokyo. The company is the leading producer of medium and heavy-duty trucks in Asia; however, Hino vehicles are sold worldwide. You have probably seen Hino vehicles on the roads of Downtown Houston, Texas, Houston, Texas, Third Ward, Texas, South Houston, Texas, and South Central Houston, Texas. Hino Motors is a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation and is one of the sixteen major companies of the Toyota Group.
In 1942, Hino Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. came out of Diesel Motor Company Co., Ltd., and the Hino name was born. After World War II, Hino focused on producing heavy-duty trailer trucks, buses, and diesel engines and became known as Hino Industry Co., Ltd. To emphasize its marketing focus to their customers, the company was then renamed Hino Diesel Industry Co., Ltd. In 1950, the heavy-duty truck TH10 was introduced, which came with the new 7-liter DS10 diesel engine. The TH10 was considerably heavier than the Japanese heavy-duty trucks that came before it, as it weighed more than 13,230 pounds.
Hino entered the private car market in 1953, manufacturing Renaults under license, and in 1961, Hino started building its own Contessa 900 sedan with an 893cc rear-mounted engine. Moreover, Hino also built a pickup truck called the “Hino Briska,” with the Contessa engine slightly enlarged and placed in the front with rear-wheel drive.
