According to reports, Toyota unveiled the 18 wheel hydrogen powered truck to transport cargo within Port of Los Angeles USA.
The company said the hydrogen powered truck will help access how the emerging technology performs in heavy-duty vehicles. The company further unveiled 100 hydrogen powered buses at the Tokyo Olympic games to transport athletes and spectators.
According to Craig Scott, the director of Toyota’s advanced technologies group, “the key to making any new fuel work is to have adoption of that fuel across a wide spectrum of applications.”
Toyota isn’t the only company interested in replacing diesel fuel.
Tesla plans to unveil an electric semi-truck and pick-up truck within two years, and Mercedes is currently testing its electric truck in Germany. A startup called Nikola Motor plans to deliver its hydrogen truck in 2020.
