Hyundai Motor said Oct. 29 it has debuted a hydrogen-powered truck concept in the United States as part of its efforts to sell its zero-emission trucks in the world‘s most important automobile market.
He carmaker introduced the HDC-6 Neptune, a hydrogen-powered heavy-duty truck, at the 2019 North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta on Oct. 28 (local time).
“Today at this show, by showing the HDC-6 Neptune, the first hydrogen-only concept for Hyundai Motor’s commercial vehicles, we will start exploring opportunities in the US commercial vehicle market,” said Edward Lee, head of the Hyundai Commercial Vehicle Business Division.
“Furthermore, we are willing to work with other partners to pave the way to establish a hydrogen ecosystem for commercial vehicles.”
The truck concept is part of Hyundai’s plan to take a leadership role in the road to a decarbonized society and the advancement of zero-emission vehicles, the statement said.
The fuel cell electric truck only emits water vapor as it converts stored hydrogen into electricity, which turns the vehicle’s motor.
