When you’re in one spot all day for work you want it to be comfortable. If it’s an office, the chair, desk and general surrounds all contribute to your happiness. And since working from home due to COVID restrictions that started earlier this year, many office workers have been able to adjust their wardrobe to increase the comfort levels.
The all new Hino 300 Series is making the professional driver’s workspace more comfortable with a balance of functionality, accessibility and comfort. In designing the new model, Hino has applied particular attention to the driving position and the integration of the driver into the vehicle’s interior.
“The driver’s seat and steering wheel offer a range of positions, allowing for a more comfortable experience for drivers of most shapes and sizes. Access is achieved through the generously sized door opening, large footstep and well placed grab handle locations,” said Mr Petrovski.
In the cabin drivers will be delighted to find a large 6.5-inch high definition, capacitive touch screen multimedia unit, which was first introduced in the 500 Series Standard Cab models in 2019, and is now standard fitment on all Hino trucks.
“This highly intelligent unit is capable of connecting up to four multi-position cameras and supports AM/FM and DAB+ digital radio, Bluetooth music streaming and mobile phone connectivity, an Android operating system with Wi-Fi connectivity allowing over-the-air software updates.”
Options for the multimedia unit include a digital video camera recorder (DVR) feature, as well as truck specific satellite navigation, and tyre pressure monitoring. Key multimedia features can be controlled with the new steering wheel controls, which ensure that the driver’s eyes are kept on the road.
