Hyundai Motor’s Hydrogen Mobility Solution has won the International Truck of the Year (IToY) Truck Innovation Award.

Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility was set up by Hyundai Motor Company and H2 Energy earlier this year with the goal of expanding Europe’s hydrogen mobility ecosystem by implementing the use of fuel cell trucks.

The company plans to deliver 1,600 fuel cell electric heavy-duty trucks by 2025.

The IToY Truck Innovation Award is determined by a jury of 25 commercial vehicle editors and senior journalists that represent major trucking magazines from Europe and South Africa.

Edward Lee, Head of Hyundai Commercial Vehicle Business Division, said, “This is a validation of our approach to commercialising hydrogen-powered fuel cell trucks in Europe and around the world

“The joint venture between Hyundai and H2 Energy was established to accelerate our Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) Vision 2030, and we’re honoured that this prestigious group of journalists has recognised our efforts.”
