Japan: Hino Motors Electrifies Commercial Vans for Tokyo Motor Show

The 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011 is (almost) around the corner – and December 2nd-11th is going to see a number of electric and hybrid vehicles shown off. One of the automakers joining the trend is Hino Motors, with a small commercial electric van and the Dutro Plug-in Hybrid.

Hino’s small electric van prototype – as of yet unnamed – is a short-range optimized “One Box Van.” The boxy shape incorporates a compact electric motor in the front (not much of a hood, hence the moniker), instead of a more familiar long hood housing a combustion engine. The prototype is meant to take advantage of densely packed urban areas where a power outlet is never too far away.
