1,500 hydrogen trucks to be deployed on New Zealand roads by 2026

Hyzon Motors will deliver 1,500 hydrogen-powered heavy trucks in New Zealand by 2026 – and the first batch could be on the roads by the end of 2021.

The fuel cell truck maker will deliver the zero emission heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) as part of a new deal announced on Wednesday (17th Feb) with Hiringa Energy, the green hydrogen supplier aiming to establish 100+ hydrogen stations in New Zealand by 2030.
