Hyundai will debut its new commercial truck concept during the North American Commercial Vehicle Show which will be held in Atlanta between 28th-31st October (2019).
“We have cemented the fuel cell technology leadership position in the passenger vehicle sector with the world’s first commercially produced fuel cell electric vehicle and the second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle, the NEXO,” said Edward Lee, Head of Commercial Vehicle Business Division at Hyundai Motor Company.
“With the induction of the HDC-6 NEPTUE, in addition to the road proven Xcient fuel cell truck, we expand our technology leadership into the commercial vehicle sector by unveiling our vision of how fuel cell electric trucks can resolve the environmental equation of widely use commercial vehicles and our commitment to create a decarbonised society.”
Hyundai’s name for its new concept recognises the Roman god of the seas, Neptune, symbolising the hydrogen powered natural elements of the sea.
