Based on Indonesian Automotive Industry Association (Gaikindo)'s retail sales data for March 2019, Hino's trucks and buses sales were on top in the country with 3 038 units.
Hino's sales were supported by its Medium Duty trucks where as many as 1 964 units were sold, which is 63 percent market share with the Hino New Generation Ranger FM 260 JD being the best-selling model. The Hino New Dutro in the light-duty truck segment also managed to make good sale with 1 055 units, while the remaining sales were driven by contributions from the Heavy-Duty Truck segment.
Director of Sales and Promotion of Hino Motors Sales Indonesia (HMSI), Santiko Wardoyo, in a statement, said this success was evidence that the Indonesian people, especially businessmen, are increasingly believing in the Hino brand.
Besides that, Hino also prioritises the Total Support services to loyal customers and their businesses. This principle minimises vehicle costs and maximises vehicle operational time so that the working time of the vehicle becomes optimal. "Becoming a total market leader for trucks and buses is an added driving factor for us to continue providing the best service and value for the customer's business," Santiko added.
