Hyundai Motor sells 1,000 hydrogen-powered trucks in Switzerland

Better than Tesla electric semi and Nikola H2 truck ? Hyundai said in a statement it will partner with Swiss hydrogen company H2 Energy and fuel cell operators to provide 1,000 hydrogen trucks in the country after launching at the end of 2019.

Hyundai said its hydrogen trucks are expected to deliver a single-fueling travel range of around 400 kilometers.
