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. 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, CA, 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.
