B20 biodiesel blends are now approved by more than 95 percent of the medium duty truck market in the U.S., and by more than 60 percent of the U.S. diesel vehicle and equipment manufacturers as a whole.
At High Efficiency Truck Users Forum (HTUF) Conference in Baltimore this week the B20 approved 2012 Hino 195h diesel-electric hybrid truck made its debut. Hino’s B20 approval statement joins Isuzu Commercial Trucks, Ford Motor Company, International / Navistar, Chevrolet, Cummins engines and others.
Hino Trucks, a Toyota Group Company, announced its full approval for use of B20 biodiesel blends in its new hybrid-electric truck as well as its complete product line of class 4 and 5 cab over, and class 6 and 7 conventional trucks in July 2011. Hino is the world’s third largest manufacturer of light and medium duty trucks, and now the fastest growing truck manufacturer in the U.S.
