Hyundai Motor presented a first look at a rendering of a new truck with fuel cell powertrain which is set to be launched in 2019. The heavy-duty fuel cell truck will follow the ix35 Fuel Cell and the NEXO in Hyundai’s expanding fuel cell lineup.
The truck aims at simple and clean design which is also aerodynamically efficient with a spoiler and side protector. The front grille symbolizes hydrogen through geometric shapes, giving the vehicle a unique and powerful look.
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 specifications.
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.
