LONGVIEW, TX – Capacity Trucks, a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc. (NYSE: REVG), announces it has produced the first North American hydrogen fuel cell electric hybrid terminal truck built from the ground up. The company has manufactured two of these trucks, which are currently in operation at the Port of Long Beach, CA. They will be on display and available for test drives at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Conference, August 30 – September 2 in Long Beach, California.
Under a grant awarded in 2019, Capacity Trucks designed these two hydrogen fuel cell hybrid electric vehicles. They maximize uptime by providing a hydrogen power backup when the electric battery requires recharging. This hydrogen fuel cell hybrid electric terminal truck is designed for operation in intermodal, port, and warehouse/distribution applications.
In North America, Capacity Trucks is leading the way with zero-emissions, battery, and hydrogen fuel cell technology, innovating its first battery electric vehicle over 10 years ago. With an ongoing commitment to alternative fuels, Capacity Trucks will continue to advance that technology into a full EV product and the next evolution of hydrogen fuel cell power, expecting maximum rate production for both in 2022. Both emissions-free technologies will be telematics and autonomous ready with all the componentry to upgrade to a fully autonomous vehicle.
“Since its inception, Capacity Trucks has been a leader in the marketplace,” said Ryan Rockafellow, VP/GM, Capacity Trucks. “With our focus and commitment to alternative fuels, we will continue to lead in this space.
