Hyundai Motor has formed a consortium with five global companies to develop hydrogen charging standards for commercial fuel cell electric vehicles, the company said on March 4.
Last week, Hyundai signed an initial pact with French industrial gas supplier Air Liquide, Norway’s hydrogen charging facility firm Nel, US-based hydrogen truck maker Nikola, theNetherlands-based oil and gas firm Royal Dutch Shell and Toyota Motor, Korea’s No. 1 carmaker said in a statement.
The joint effort aims to create a universally accepted charging technology for buses and trucks that run on hydrogen.
The six companies of the consortium are planning to develop key components for FCEV charging facilities and the high-pressure 700-bar charging technology needed for commercial vehicles, the company said.
