This is the first glimpse of Hyundai Motor’s new truck with fuel cell powertrain, set to be launched in 2019.
The hydrogen (H2) fuel cell electric truck boasts a distinctive design which sets it apart from other Hyundai commercial vehicles. The truck has a simple and clean design, which is also aerodynamically efficient with a spoiler and side protector.
The front grille symbolises H2 through geometric shapes, giving the vehicle a unique and powerful look. The vehicle emanates an eco-friendly look with an iconic blue colour application and a bold side body graphic on the container, which visualizes its dynamic character.
During the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018, taking place in Hanover, Germany, Hyundai will announce the future plans for introducing the fuel cell electric truck in the European eco-friendly commercial vehicle market next year as well revealing vehicle specification.
Hyundai Motor also recently completed South Korea’s first domestic highway journey with an autonomously navigated semi-trailer truck. Hyundai’s Xcient truck drove approximately 40km on the highway between Uiwang and Incheon, carrying large semi-trailer simulating cargo transportation, showcasing Hyundai’s innovative technological advancement in future mobility.
