Oasis Water Company drives hybrid vehicles sales
Al-Futtaim Motors has handed over a Hino 300 Series hybrid truck to Oasis Water Company as the mineral water distributor seeks to make operations more sustainable.
"As a market leader in the packaged water industry we understand that our intention to improve the quality of life of our community through access to convenient and affordable water solutions must be balanced with the potential impact our industry has on the environment we live in,” said George Antonios, marketing director of National Food Products Company.
The custom-built Hino 300 series Hybrid light-duty truck has been modified by Gorica to suit the requirements of the business and now features a mounted half chiller, half freezer body that has been manufactured with high-quality GRP panels, ensuring conformity to market requirements, particularly in the hot summer months.
The Hino 300 Series Hybrid features the world’s first hybrid diesel engine designed to deliver cleaner, more efficient transport solutions. The truck employs a Euro 4 and EVV compliant 4L diesel engine matched to an auxiliary electric motor that is emission-free, which significantly reduces emissions of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, particulate matter and nitrogen oxide.
“Our relationship with Oasis goes back many years, with a large part of their fleet consisting of Hino trucks. The introduction of the Hino 300 Series Hybrid is a concrete evidence of the mutual environmental values Oasis Water shares with Al-Futtaim Motors in our efforts to enhance air quality in the UAE and reduce our carbon footprint on the environment in line with UAE’s 2021 vision,” said Ramez Hamdan, general manager of Hino at Al-Futtaim Motors.
