New Hyzon Motors technology enables higher efficiency in hydrogen trucks

Hyzon Motors has revealed today (May 26) its breakthrough eAxle Technology which is expected to enable high-efficiency hydrogen and battery trucks.

The eAxle technology provides up to 97% motor-to-wheel efficiency, reducing loss by up to 40%, and also allows the company’s next generation 6×4 Class-8 commercial trucks to be outfitted with the technology to enable 950kW peak power.

Paired with a virtual differential, the design achieves efficiency of up to 97%, compared to industry-standard 95% with the eAxle also able to reduce the motor-to-wheel loss as much as 40% further allowing full torque regenerative braking.

Hyzon will incorporate the eAxle in its next generation Class-8 heavy trucks featuring an all-in-one electric powertrain that can be maintained easily and at a low cost, while providing best-in-class performance with an estimated electrical fuel economy of up to 19.7 mpge at full load.
