The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding to co-develop electric and hydrogen-powered terminal tractors with automation-ready capabilities. Initial prototypes are targeted to be available in 2021 for field testing.

The companies say the collaboration brings together Capacity’s terminal truck platform and Hyster-Yale Group’s experience in lift truck electric powertrain technology and hydrogen fuel cell technology developed by its subsidiary company, Nuvera. VDL Automated Vehicles, a subsidiary of VDL Groep BV, is designated as the preferred integration partner and supplier for automation.

The agreement includes exclusive manufacturing and supply provisions, with units branded separately as either Capacity or Hyster.
