Hyundai to launch hydrogen truck digitally tomorrow

A digital premiere event will be held tomorrow (14th Oct) for the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell heavy-duty truck, the XCIENT Fuel Cell.

At 10am KST, leaders of Hyundai’s Commercial Vehicle Business Division and Fuel Cell Centre will introduce the eco-friendly fuel cell truck and Hyundai’s roadmap for clean commercial mobility.

The livestream will be viewable at Hyundai’s official YouTube channel.

The first seven XCIENT Fuel Cell trucks were delivered to customers in Switzerland last week.

South Korea’s largest automaker plans to ship 50 XCIENT Fuel Cells to Switzerland this year and roll out a total of 1,600 trucks by 2025.

Hyundai’s focus on the fuel cell technology reflects its commitment to clean mobility and vision for a future hydrogen society.

XCIENT Fuel Cell is equipped with a 350-bar 32kg hydrogen tank that provides around 400km of  driving range with a full trailer in tow.

Fuelling time to full charging takes approximately eight to 20 minutes and this truck can carry a load comparable to a diesel truck.

It also provides various safety and convenience features such as Front Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), smartphone mirroring and wireless charging.
