[THE INVESTOR] Hyundai Motor on Sept. 14 provided the first look of its new truck, powered by a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, ahead of its planned launch next year.
The auto giant plans to officially introduce the electric rigid truck at the IAA Commercial Vehicles show scheduled to take place from Sept. 20-27 in Hanover, Germany.
The fuel cell electric truck boasts a distinctive design which sets it apart from the rest of the Hyundai commercial vehicle line-up. It has a simple and clean design, is aerodynamically efficient and has a spoiler and side protector, Hyundai said in a statement.
The geometric shapes on the front grille symbolize hydrogen, giving the vehicle a unique and powerful look. With the bold, blue graphic design on the side, it emanates both dynamism and an eco-friendly nature, the company said.
Hyundai said it will announce official figures and specs for the truck in Hanover.
