SEOUL: Hyundai Motor Company hosted a digital premiere event for the launch of XCIENT Fuel Cell, the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell heavy-duty truck, on Oct. 14.
At the event, leaders of Hyundai’s Commercial Vehicle Business Division and Fuel Cell Center introduced 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 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 400 km of driving range with a full trailer in tow.
Fueling time to full charging takes approximately 8~20 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.
Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Company offers a range of world-class vehicles and mobility services in more than 200 countries. Hyundai Motor sold more than 4.4 million vehicles globally in 2019 and currently employs some 120,000 personnel worldwide.
The company is enhancing its product lineup with vehicles designed to help usher in a more sustainable future while offering innovative solutions to real-world mobility challenges.
