KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When did Isuzu and Honda sign an agreement to conduct a joint study on fuel cell-powered heavy-duty trucks?

    Isuzu and Honda signed an agreement in January 2020 to conduct a joint study on fuel cell-powered heavy-duty trucks.
  • When will Isuzu and Honda launch a fuel cell-powered heavy-duty truck in the market?

    Isuzu and Honda plan to launch a fuel cell-powered heavy-duty truck in 2027.
  • The two Japanese carmakers believe that fuel cell technology will be effective in achieving carbon neutrality even on long-distance driving and large load capacity as it uses hydrogen as fuel.

    In January 2020, Isuzu and Honda inked an agreement to conduct a joint study on fuel cell-powered heavy-duty trucks. They are now set to begin the demonstration testing of a prototype model on public roads.

    The Giga Fuel Cell that will be exhibited at the upcoming Japan Mobility Show features the Lowdeck 8x4 rigid truck configuration that is typically seen on trucks used for intercity trips. It is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and has a range of 800 kilometers with zero emission. The Giga Fuel Cell also comes with an external power output function that allows it to supply power to electronic devices when needed, such as in times of emergency or disaster.

    As Isuzu and Honda plan to launch a fuel cell-powered heavy-duty truck in 2027, the two companies continue to work together to develop a product that meets the performance requirements of a heavy-duty truck and satisfies their clients.
