    A Fuso FG hybrid

    Would be an interesting build. Hino offers their cabovers with hybrid drive. An electric motor could provide the extra power for pulling grades when loaded. Or perhaps a driveline like the Toyota Rav 4, gas engine for the front, electric motor drives the rear? Plenty of carrying capacity for...
