Volvo Trucks announced that on-road testing for the hydrogen trucks it is developing will begin in 2026. The company said the commercial launch of these trucks with combustion engines that run on hydrogen is planned towards the end of this decade.

“Trucks where the traditional internal combustion engine remains but runs on hydrogen will have the same performance and reliability as our diesel trucks, but with the added benefit of potentially net zero CO2 emissions well-to-wheel," said Jan Hjelmgren, head of product management and quality at Volvo Trucks. "They will be a valuable complement to our battery electric trucks, which have been on the market for several years.”
