Hyundai's XCIENT Fuel Cell Hitting the Road in California


...30 units of Class 8 XCIENT Fuel Cell, with a 6-by-4 drive axle configuration, to northern California by the second quarter of 2023.


Glovis America, a logistics service provider, will be the fleet operator of these trucks. Macquarie's Specialized and Asset Finance business, part of its Commodities and Global Markets division, will finance the trucks through a lease to the operator.


"We are proud to fund this hallmark deployment of 30 hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks and improve the air quality in Northern California," said Hannon Rasool, deputy director of Fuels and Transportation Division at the California Energy Commission. "These investments will support zero-emission trucks and infrastructure development and deployment as part of the U.S. market ecosystem. Public and private project partners have come together to take a big step forward in decarbonizing freight and goods movement, as part of CARB and CEC's clean air initiatives."


The consortium also plans to establish a high-capacity hydrogen refueling station in Oakland, CA, that will be able to support as many as 50 trucks with an average fill of 30 kilograms.
