Hino national roadshow rolls into Toowoomba

Continuing on from a successful venture in 2022, Hino’s national roadshow has made its latest stop

The Hino national roadshow has pulled into Toowoomba, as the truck manufacturer continues its grand tour across Australia.

Travelling more than 130,000km across the country across 2022 and 2023, the convoy has been showcasing several Hino vehicles to interested residents from bustling cities to small, rural towns.

The Toowoomba stop of the show was Hino’s biggest yet, being one of the largest undertakings between the manufacturer and its dealers.

Chris Swain, group general manager of the Wideland Group says the company was able to demonstrate the range that Hino can provide.

“The concept of the Hino Roadshow is fantastic – we showcased vehicles from across the Hino range, with a particular focus on the heavy-duty 700 Series range, and the innovative 300 Series Hybrid Electric light-duty truck,” Swain says.

“The entire model line-up has received significant enhancements over the past five years, so it is a terrific opportunity for our customers to be able to compare a selection of award-winning trucks.

“This was also an opportunity for us to showcase/officially open our new workshop, which has more than doubled in size, and includes new detailing and wash-down facilities.”

The event offered a little bit of everything for customers, with a free sausage sizzle, pizza and live entertainment some of the additions to the show.

2023’s edition of the roadshow is set to conclude in January in Canberra, but there’s plenty of ground to cover before it reaches the nation’s capital, according to Hino Australia vice president of brand and franchise development Richard Emery.

“In 2022, we were proud to bring our range of next-generation vehicles to over 500 customers as the roadshow travelled to various locations in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales,” Emery says.

“For Hino, it was important that our rural and regional customers were provided with the same opportunity to engage with and drive our trucks.

“As part of the roadshow’s 130,000 kilometre journey, the 2023 leg will travel as far north as Mackay, as far south as Mt Gambier and will cross the Nullarbor to Perth.”
