Plug Power has developed a new hydrogen-powered truck

An innovative Class 6 hydrogen-powered fuel cell truck, which is suitable for middle-mile, medium-duty deliveries, has been developed by Plug Power.

Plug Power’s truck is able to travel up to 500 miles, through the use of an electric propulsion system, which has been proven to be successful within the industry. The electric propulsion system is efficiently powered by Plug’s ProGen fuel cell technology.

It’s ability to travel up to 500 miles, will be extremely important for middle-mile deliveries and another advantage, is that the vehicle does not need a commercial driver’s license (CDL) for operation. This makes the vehicle better for the environment and it makes it more accessible for a wider variety of drivers.

At the moment, the truck is fully developed and is in its final integration and testing phase. The plan for the summer of 2024 is for the operational pilots to commence and this will be done through a collaboration with Plug’s key market leader logistic customers. Performing these tests and completing the final phase will provide the company with valuable real-world data and feedback and will therefore provide them with the opportunity for future improvements and other developments.

Plug CEO, Andy Marsh, commented, “Plug continues to lead charge in developing and deploying hydrogen fuel cell solutions for electric vehicle platforms. Our ProGen engine, built on decades of operational experience, offers unmatched benefits for middle-mile delivery – range, rapid fuelling, cargo volume optimisation and higher power densities.”
