Hyundai Motor Co. and Cummins Inc. have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to jointly evaluate opportunities to develop and commercialize electric and fuel cell powertrains.

These new powertrains are expected to be developed by combining Hyundai’s fuel cell systems with Cummins’ electric powertrain, battery and control technologies. The initial development will be focused on the North American commercial vehicle market, including working with North American OEMs on the integration of these systems into their vehicles. The companies will also explore ways they can work together to develop future fuel cell technology, and have each committed to assign a team to investigate and pursue other areas of collaboration.

The companies say the collaboration may extend beyond the commercial vehicle market, as the companies will also evaluate the development of fuel cell power generators.
