Our Journey towards
Zero Emissions has started

The era of fossil fuel may have gifted us convenience, but it is affecting
the beauty of the world around us and the air we breathe.

Hyundai is one of the first to see the potential of hydrogen as an alternative energy
which can replace fossil fuels for a more sustainable future.

It represents the 100% zero-emission on a well-to-wheel basis where the hydrogen is
produced from renewable energy.

A new chapter of Xcient Fuel Cell, the future of logistics
without environment pollution, starts now.



Eco-friendly and still energy-efficient
solution for transportation

Why Hydrogen for Heavy Road Transport?

Refueling time and range are important factors definitely for the operation of
heavy duty trucks. In this regard, hydrogen is the best suitable fuel for heavy duty trucks
by ensuring
a short refueling time and long distance driving while promoting
the zero-emission solution.

Easy Fueling

Xcient Fuel Cell can be charged within 8-20 minutes*
per single charge, ensures smooth opeation.

  • Based on 350 bar tank pressure
  • May change depending on outer tank temperature

Long Range

Xcient Fuel Cell reaches a drive range around 400 km per
charge, thereby providing the ideal solution for long-distance

  • Driving distance range around 400 km in the 4 x 2 rigid body configuration while towing an 18-ton trailer
  • Depends on several conditions

Technology & Performance

FCEV powertrain developed
by Hyundai’s unique technology

Eyes are on Hyundai’s fuel cell heavy duty truck running on the
road based on its technological strength.

Xcient Fuel Cell promises powerful driving on every road,
just like how trucks should be.

Fuel Cell System

The core device enabling
electrochemical reaction
of hydrogen
and oxygen to produce electric energy.

  • Max. power 190kW (95kW stack X 2)

High-Voltage Battery

It supports fuel cell system by storing or
discharging electricity.

The battery pack further allows
recuperation during braking.

  • Battery pack capacity 73.2kWh (24.4kWh X 3)

Driving Motor

Generates driving force from electric
energy supplied from the stack and

  • Max. power 350kW

First Step

Bringing the Future
Closer to Us

To get this truck running on the road, a complete H2 ecosystem is necessary.

Here’s the entire set of factors on this value chain including the hydrogen supplier,
hydrogen refueling station, customer and truck. Let’s find how we approached in
Switzerland as the first step.

First Step in Switzerland

Build Partnerships

Build partnerships with hydrogen value chain players and various stakeholders to form a hydrogen community, 1,600 hydrogen trucks will be operated in Switzerland by 2025.

Well-to-Wheel Zero Emission

100% Green Hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources.
It represents the 100% zero-emission on a well-to-wheel basis.

  • Electric Energy
  • Hydrogen Energy
  • Refueling
  • Drive Range Around
  • Water Emission

How to Operate

Consumers use services and operate hydrogen vehicles in the form of ‘Pay-Per-Use’.

  • This pay-per-use plan includes fuel refueling, service charge, two-year warranty and six-year replacement (fuel cell, high voltage battery only).
  • Actual models and specifications may be different by region.
