the road to sustainable transportation, first prototypes of the fuel-cell
powered Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck have been undergoing intensive testing since
last year – both on Daimler Truck’s in-house test track and on public roads.
the IAA Transportation 2022, neing held in Hannover, Germany, Daimler Truck
will be offering selected visitors a ride-along in one of its fuel-cell trucks.
In doing so, the truck manufacturer demonstrates the practicality of a fully
loaded 40-ton hydrogen truck on public roads. Just in time for the start of the
IAA, H2 MOBILITY Germany thereby enables hydrogen refueling at a Shell station
in Laatzen near the trade fair grounds in Hannover.
fuel station provides green and thus CO2-neutral hydrogen. The Mercedes-Benz
GenH2 Truck prototype has a license for road use and is powered and refueled
with gaseous hydrogen. At the Mercedes-Benz Trucks booth in Hall 19/20 at the
IAA Transportation 2022 in Hannover, Daimler Truck also exhibits a GenH2 Truck
prototype with liquid hydrogen tanks.
Truck prefers liquid hydrogen in the development of hydrogen-based drives for
the long term. In this aggregate state, the energy carrier has a significantly
higher energy density in relation to volume compared to gaseous hydrogen. As a
result, more hydrogen can be carried, which significantly increases the range
and enables comparable performance of the vehicle with that of a conventional
diesel truck. The development objective of the series-ready GenH2 Truck is a
range of up to 1,000 kilometers and more without refueling. This makes the
truck suitable for particularly flexible and demanding applications, especially
in the important segment of heavy-duty long-haul transport. The start of series
production for hydrogen-based trucks is planned for the second half of the
