Daimler truck keeps driving on hydrogen

Now independent, Daimler’s bus and truck division is moving forward with zero-emission technology and in particular hydrogen.

In its annual report, the company states that the hydrogen-powered Mercedes-Benz GenH2 fuel cell is being developed to series production and that the joint-venture between Daimler Truck and the Volvo Group – cellcentric – is set to begin production of fuel cells in Weilheim (Baden-Wuerttemberg/Germany).

As for Daimler Buses, it plans to offer CO2-neutral models in its portfolio by 2030, based on batteries or hydrogen, for each bus segment; for example, a fully electric intercity bus is planned by the middle of the decade and a hydrogen coach by 2030. In addition, Daimler Buses plans to offer only locally CO2-neutral new vehicles in the city bus segment in Europe from 2030.

Europe wants to reduce CO2 emissions from trucks by 90% by 2040 and buses to become zero-emission by 2030.
