In Europe, the new Hyundai fuel cell electric truck will appear in the next year

The Hyundai brand published the first image of a truck equipped with an electric power plant with hydrogen fuel cells. In the European market, the model is planned to be presented next year.

Plans for the production of “green” tractor Korean manufacturer announced at the International Exhibition of Commercial Vehicles in Hanover. In the same place the representative of the brand promised next year to open all the technical characteristics of the car.

Now we only know that the novelty will visually differ from other representatives of the commercial vehicle line Hyundai. In particular, the grille pattern of the truck’s radiator will symbolize hydrogen, and for the aerodynamic efficiency the spoiler on the roof and the spacers between the cabin and the semitrailer will respond.

In the Hyundai line, there are already hydrogen cars – these are the crossovers iX35 Fuel Cell and NEXO. The latter debuted at CES in January. The all-terrain vehicle is equipped with electromotors with a capacity of 120 kilowatts (163 horsepower), which is powered by a block of fuel cells. The power reserve Hyundai NEXO is about 590 kilometers.
