Heavy-Duty Fuel Cell Electric Truck Verification Tests to Start in Spring 2022

Asahi Group Holdings, Ltd. , Seino Transportation Co., Ltd., NEXT Logistics Japan Co., Ltd., Yamato Transport Co., Ltd., Toyota Motor Corporation, and Hino Motors, Ltd. have agreed to conduct on-the-road trials of heavy-duty fuel cell electric trucks (heavy-duty FCETs) starting in spring of 2022, accelerating the early commercial application of heavy-duty FCETs and contributing to the development of a sustainable society. This may be achieved, at least in part, by reducing CO₂ emissions from heavy-duty FCETs, which account for approximately 70 percent of all CO₂ emissions from commercial vehicles in Japan. Toyota and Hino are jointly developing heavy-duty FCETs, and Asahi Group, NLJ, Seino Transportation, Yamato Transport, and Toyota will perform the road trials in their logistics operations.
