Hyzon Motors hits the road

In News2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMarch 18, 2021

The global supplier of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel-cell-powered commercial vehicles, Hyzon Motors, recently held its virtual Hydrogen Now event, in which the MD of Hyzon Europe, Carl Holthausen, took viewers on a virtual ride along in one of the company‘s zero-emission, hydrogen fuel-cell (HFC) powered trucks from its production-ready facility in Groningen, The Netherlands.

In partnership with New Zealand‘s Hiringa Energy, Hyzon will begin supplying the first 20 HFC heavy trucks to New Zealand this year, aiming to deliver 1500 HFC heavy trucks by 2026. The first Hyzon-branded heavy-duty truck will hit the roads in Europe in the next few months. 

Hyzon CEO and co-founder Craig Knight said: “All of us at Hyzon firmly believe the global hydrogen revolution for commercial vehicles is now – and is already underway. Hydrogen as a fuel for commercial transport is a reality today, not a decade from now.”

Knight added that Hyzon‘s fuel-cell technology had been developed and commercialised by the parent company for more than 17 years and had been deployed in more than 500 commercial vehicles, mainly in Asia.

“Our purpose is to help accelerate the energy transition. We take that role seriously, and we‘re doing our part by helping to eliminate emissions,” concluded Knight.
