The company plans to ship a total of 50 XCIENT Fuel Cells to Switzerland this year, with handover to commercial fleet customers starting in September.

Hyundai plans to roll out a total of 1,600 XCIENT Fuel Cell trucks by 2025, reflecting the company’s environmental commitment and technological prowess as it works toward reducing carbon emissions through zero-emission solutions.

XCIENT is powered by a 190-kW hydrogen fuel cell system with dual 95-kW fuel cell stacks.

Seven large hydrogen tanks offer a combined storage capacity of around 32.09 kg of hydrogen.

The driving range per charge for XCIENT Fuel Cell is about 400km*, which was developed with an optimal balance between the specific requirements from the potential commercial fleet customers and the charging infrastructure in Switzerland.

Refueling time for each truck takes approximately 8~20 minutes.
