Less than a year ago, Hino Trucks announced that it was building a Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell electric truck. The company made good on this promise with the reveal of its first Class 8 Hino XL8 prototype powered by a hydrogen fuel cell electric drivetrain at the 2021 ACT Expo in Long Beach, California.
“We are looking forward to validating the performance, reliability and efficiency of our hydrogen fuel cell electric system in the XL Series chassis,” said Glenn Ellis, senior vice president of customer experience for Hino Trucks.
“From our Project Z announcement last October, we have received significant interest from customers, and now we have something tangible to show them in our prototype FCEV,” said Bob Petz, senior vice president of vehicle and parts sales for Hino Trucks.
