Hyzon Motors Inc.‘s hydrogen fuel cell-powered truck will hit the road soon in California in its first customer trial in the U.S. Hyzon signed a trial agreement with Total Transport Services Inc (TTSI), a port trucking company in Southern California, to provide a Class 8 heavy-duty fuel cell electric truck to TTSI for a 30-day trial in Q4.
The truck, built on a 2022 Freightliner Cascadia chassis, is expected to have 600 peak HP and a range of up to 400 miles. According to the company, because of those specifications, the truck can be placed into TTSI’s existing operations, hauling up to 82,000 lbs. gross combined vehicle weight (GCVW), a standard load for TTSI, and taking advantage of the public heavy-duty hydrogen refueling station in Wilmington, California, nearby TTSI’s Long Beach Custom’s House operations.
The trial will mark TTSI’s first experience with a zero-emissions vehicle capable of 400 miles range, Hyzon says.
