The infrastructure to efficiently distribute Diesel Exhaust Fluid in the United States is rapidly being established. DEF will be available through all 176 Hino dealers. In addition, a coalition of industries—including truck manufacturers, truck stops, retail fueling stations, fuel distributors, and DEF producers—will have established bulk DEF filling stations across North America.

Hino created a new web microsite, www.hinoscr.com, that is dedicated to explaining how the firm has developed technology to meet or exceed the 2010 guidelines and what that means to Hino owners. A page provides answers to the most frequently asked questions about SCR and DEF.

The firm also has scheduled a series of 2011 model year launch events for its dealers beginning the first week in December 2009. During these launch events, the national dealer network will test-drive and learn about Hino’s new 2011 product strategy and technologies.
