Hyundai launches world’s debut hydrogen production truckOctober 9, 2020
Hyunda has announced the launch of the Xcient hydrogen-powered truck in Europe, delivering the first seven to Switzerland.
Described as the world’s debut mass-production truck featuring a fuel cell powertrain, Xcient heralds Hyundai’s commercial entry into mainstream markets. First of all, the trucks of the Korean brand will be supplied to Europe, and then they will appear in the North American and Chinese markets.
Along with the aforementioned 7 units of Xcient, it is planned to transfer 43 more copies to Swiss consumers by the end of this year. In turn, by 2021, Hyundai announced that it will be able to produce 2,000 copies of Xcient every year.
The approximately 9-meter Xcient model has a 255 hp hydrogen fuel cell system and two stacks of 127 hp fuel cells. Hydrogen, in turn, is stored in 7 tanks with a capacity of 32 kg. At one gas station, a truck can travel about 400 km, and refueling takes 8 – 20 minutes. Note that the Korean company is going to open over 100 hydrogen filling stations in Switzerland.
