Major manufacturer drops hydrogen trucks in favor of battery-electrics


Where will hydrogen fit in the clean transport mix? Not in trucking, says one of the world’s largest heavy duty vehicle manufacturers, which is scaling back its fuel cell big-rig research and development operations in favor of battery-electric power.
Hydrogen is definitely happening. It’s a convenient (if inefficient) way to store, transport and export clean energy, it offers huge energy density advantages for zero-emissions aviation and shipping, and many folk are expecting it to find a compelling use case in long-distance trucking, where its quick refilling ability can keep big
