The ‘Xcient Fuel Cell’ will be delivered to Swiss customers in a 4×2 variant with a total gross combination weight of 34 t from 2020 onwards. It comes with a dry body or a refrigerated body.
The ‘Xcient Fuel Cell’ draws the electricity required for the drive from two 95 kW fuel cells, which convert the onboard hydrogen and oxygen from the ambient air into electrical energy. The fuel cell operation is emission-free – the only by-product is pure water vapor. The system is supplemented by a 73.2 kWh battery.
34.5 kg of hydrogen on board of the truck allow a range – depending on the usage – of about 400 km and while the payload is comparable to a diesel truck of the same size.
