Honda to demonstrate Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell truck – Truck News

Honda is bringing a Class 8 hydrogen fuel-cell-electric conept truck to ACT Expo next week, in a bid to find fleet partners for demonstrations in the North American market.

“Commercial vehicles, including Class 8 trucks, where fuel cells offer the best zero-emission replacement for existing diesel applications, are a key part of Honda’s broad hydrogen business strategy,” said Ryan Harty, assistant vice-president, sustainability and business development, American Honda Motor Co. “Honda is actively seeking business collaborations and customers to help bring these hydrogen fuel cell solutions to market here in North America.”

The truck is powered by three new Honda fuel cell systems that are in mass production at Fuel Cell System Manufacturing, a joint venture with GM. The fuel cells were co-developed by the two automakers, and Honda claims the Honda FC system doubles durability while reducing costs by two-thirds compared to previous generation systems.

Honda estimates its Class 8 truck will have a range of 400 miles (640 km). It has an 82-kg hydrogen storage capacity.
