How the Hybrid Electric Works

The Hino Hybrid Electric truck utilises an electric motor and a diesel engine working in parallel, intelligently applying of both – to boost efficiency.

Power Source

Power Source

The kinetic energy from the moving vehicle is converted to useable power by the hybrid motor upon deceleration, it is stored in the batteries where it remains until the intelligent hybrid driveline determines a requirement for use during acceleration.

Start Up

Start Up

Start up of the diesel engine is performed by the hybrid electric motor, eliminating the need for a traditional starter motor.

Acceleration

Acceleration

The hybrid system continually analyses the vehicle operating conditions and the status of the hybrid battery, and can intelligently switch between the diesel engine alone, or a combination of the diesel engine and the electric motor.

Crusing

Crusing

When cruising, the Hybrid system switches to diesel engine only as this is its most fuel-efficient state.

Deceleration

Deceleration

During deceleration, the hybrid electric motor switches to generator mode, acting as an auxiliary brake while converting the kinetic energy of the moving vehicle into electric power to be stored in the hybrid battery.

Idle Stop

Idle Stop

When the vehicle comes to a stop with the brake pedal applied, the diesel engine will automatically stop, eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption. When the brake is released, the engine restarts.
