A locally designed and built hydrogen truck
Hyzon Motors unveiled today its heavy rigid truck platform, an Australian locally designed and built hydrogen fuel cell electric truck.
This follows the announcement made in 2022 by RACV and Hyzon that they would be entering a partnership agreement enabling Hyzon to establish its Australian headquarters at RACV’s Noble Park location.
RACV Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Neil Taylor welcomed today’s announcement.
"RACV’s partnership with Hyzon Motors helps to deliver on one of RACV’s key strategic objectives, that of supporting a cleaner energy future for all Australians. We are looking forward to trialling Hyzon-built hydrogen tow trucks, starting in 2023,” Mr Taylor said.
Hyzon Motors is delivering on its promise to design and manufacture local hydrogen-powered trucks in Australia.
Stage 1 construction has begun on a new purpose-built facility at the Noble Park location. Hyzon Motors’ facility will include corporate offices, a showroom, assembly warehousing and a workshop, and is expected to generate over one hundred localised engineering and manufacturing jobs.
Hyzon President of International Operations, John Edgley, said today’s announcement was a real game changer for Australia’s and New Zealand’s decarbonisation journey.
“We are building our zero emission heavy vehicles right here in Australia, using local skills, employing local people, and collaborating effectively with our colleagues across the globe,” Mr Edgley said.
Hyzon’s heavy rigid truck is expected to hit the road in a number of commercial trials in Australia and New Zealand throughout 2023.
RACV has a number of businesses and investments in cleaner energy including RACV Solar, Chargefox, JetCharge as well as its partnership with Hyzon Motors.
