Schmitz Cargobull builds hydrogen powered truck

Toddin, Germany: Schmitz Cargobull has bodied a hydrogen-powered Hyundai chassis approved for road transport in Germany.

The vehicle was built for Hylane which provides climate-neutral vehicles for rent.

Dirk Nuxoll, managing director GRW, Sabine Essmann, international key account manager logistic/food business at Schmitz Cargobull, and Bruno Altenschöpfer, fleet manager, Hylane, took delivery of the vehicle.

“I am thrilled at how quickly this concept could be implemented. This vehicle is another step forward for sustainable transport solutions with hydrogen in Germany,” Altenschöpfer said.

“Solutions for sustainable freight transport are particularly important to Schmitz Cargobull. We are pleased to realise this great pilot project in such a short time and will complete a total of 17 vehicles in the next few weeks. The box bodies from Schmitz Cargobull are optimally equipped to accommodate the hydrogen tanks on the bulkhead,” Essmann said.

” As the first hydrogen series truck to be approved in Germany, we were able to show the vehicle together with Schmitz Cargobull at the BMDV conference “Climate-friendly commercial vehicles” in Berlin. There we were also allowed to present our concept for the practical use of the trucks in detail”, Sara Schiffer, managing director, HyLane, said.

Hylane offers competitive rates thanks to funding from the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport. Customers pay only for the kilometres driven.
