Daimler Trucks presents Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck, a fuel-cell truck

The German auto giant Daimler, is developing a fuel-cell semi with range of up to 1000 kilometers per fueling and next-generation battery trucks amid intensifying competition to curb diesel and carbon exhaust from heavy-duty vehicles.  

The Mercedes-Benz GenH2, a concept truck designed for long haul runs that will be tested by customers in 2023 showed off, at an event in Berlin Wednesday. Volume production of GenH2s starts in the second half of the 2020s. 

The company also debuted its Mercedes-Benz eActros LongHaul, a battery-powered truck for short- and medium-range routes goes about 500 kilometers between charges witch production starts in 2024. Both trucks share Daimler’s new ePowetrain modular platform to help hold costs down.

The combination of hydrogen and battery vehicles “enables us to offer our customers the best vehicle options, depending on the application,” Daimler Chairman Martin Daum said at the event. “Battery power will be rather used for lower cargo weights and for shorter distances. Fuel-cell power will tend to be the preferred option for heavier loads and longer distances.”
