Toyota subsidiary Hino Trucks USA dropped teasers across its social media channels about a new electrified offering that will be unveiled at a live streamed event on October 5th. The event will be streamed live to the world on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

We know very little at this point about the project dubbed Project Z at Hino, but you can bet your bottom dollar we will be on one of the livestreams to see what all the fuss is about. Project Z could be a play on the lightning bolt in the teaser, but who really knows.

Large trucks produce massive amounts of emissions and more than that, they typically operate on diesel. That makes it that much more important to upgrade these urban and highway polluters to zero emission vehicles.

The lightning bolt in the Hino teaser makes it likely that we will see a battery electric vehicle. If I had my druthers, Hino would show off a full range of medium- and heavy-duty battery electric trucks heading into production later this month.

Head over to Hino.com to dig into the brand before the event and tune into one of their live streams on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook on October 5th at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern. If you miss the livestream or just want our take on it, we will, of course, have all the juicy details splayed out here on CleanTechnica for your consumption.
