Hyundai Motor Company will host a digital premiere event for the launch of XCIENT Fuel Cell, the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell heavy-duty truck, at midday on 14 October (AEDT).
At the event, leaders of Hyundai’s Commercial Vehicle Business Division and Fuel Cell Centre will introduce the eco-friendly fuel cell truck and their roadmap for clean commercial mobility.
Earlier in July, Hyundai shipped XCIENT Fuel Cell to customers in Switzerland as part of Hyundai Motor’s plan to roll out a total of 1,600 fuel cell electric commercial vehicles by 2025. Hyundai Motor’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 32-kg hydrogen tank that provides around 400km of driving range with a full trailer in tow. Fuelling time to full charging takes approximately 8 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.
The livestream will be viewable at Hyundai Motor’s official YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/HyundaiWorldwide, where details about Hyundai’s plan and technology will be released during the event.
