The first full-scale light-duty battery-electric truck from Hino will be equipped with Bridgestone Duravis R207A tires. The Dutro Z EV truck will sport the Bridgestone tires, which are the first light truck tires to include the tire maker’s Enliten technology, optimized for electric vehicle applications.

The all-new Dutro Z EV was released in Japan on June 28, 2022. Bridgestone’s OE fitment is the result of a long-term collaboration between the two companies, with the Duravis R207A tire contributing to a reduction in rolling resistance and weight while offering high wear resistance thanks to the tire maker’s latest tread compound, pattern and tire casing.
