Toyota Explores Heavy-Duty Hydrogen Fuel Cell Application

Furthers Commitment to Hydrogen Society
 
November 17, 2016
Toyota has long maintained that hydrogen fuel cell technology could be a zero emission solution across a broad spectrum of vehicle types. The scalability of this technology is enabling the automaker to explore a semi-trailer truck application for a California-based feasibility study.
 
The Toyota Mirai will continue to provide a zero emission driving solution for global customers; a heavy-duty truck sized fuel cell vehicle creates a potential zero-emission freight transportation solution for the future.
 
Additional details on the study, and the continued evolution of a hydrogen society, will be announced in the coming months.
