Hyundai HDC-6 NEPTUNE Concept

Hyundai is showcasing the HDC-6 NEPTUNE Concept, a hydrogen-powered Class 8 heavy-duty truck, at the H2 Mobility + Energy Show 2020 in Korea until July 3rd.

Hyundai’s mobile fuel cell generator utilizes two fuel cell stacks also used in NEXO, the world’s first dedicated fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), generating a maximum output of 160 kW. The power allows the generator to be used for various applications, such as charging two EVs simultaneously, or electric buses and trucks.

The hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric concept debuted at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show last October. Hyundai is working to expand it’s involvement with hydrogen to commercial vehicle markets, and plans to launch HDC-6 NEPTUNE within the next three to four years.

Also on display is the industry-leading FCEV NEXO with a range of 609 km on a single charge. Launched in 2018, NEXO recorded nearly 5,000 units sold in 2019.

Hyundai is also showcasing a mobile fuel cell generator at the event, hinting at the possibility of fuel cell systems expanding usage to other industries as a clean alternative to diesel generators.
