by Autocar Pro News Desk , 14 Sep 2018

Hyundai Motor today released a first-look rendering of a new truck with fuel cell powertrain which is set to be launched in 2019. After the ix35 Fuel Cell and the Nexo, the new fuel cell electric truck is another iteration of its fuel cell technology.

The fuel cell electric truck has a distinctive design which sets it apart from other Hyundai commercial vehicles. A simple and clean design, it is also aerodynamically efficient with a spoiler and side protector. The front grille symbolises hydrogen through geometric shapes, giving the vehicle a unique and powerful look.

During the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 taking place in Hanover Germany from September 20-27, Hyundai will announce future plans for introducing the fuel cell electric truck in the European commercial vehicle market next year as well revealing vehicle specification.

Hyundai Motor also recently completed South Korea’s first domestic highway journey with an autonomously navigated semi-trailer truck. Hyundai’s Xcient truck drove approximately 40km on the highway between Uiwang and Incheon, carrying large semi-trailer simulating cargo transportation.
