Atlanta, GA – The Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) was recently awarded a grant to support the deployment of 30 Hyundai XCIENT Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks (FCET) in northern California. The grant is partially funded by California Climate Investments and was awarded by the California Air Resources Board and the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program. The project is also funded by over $6 million in cost-share funding provided by the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. This project will be the largest commercial deployment of Class 8 hydrogen FCETs in North America. Thanks to the endorsement and support from the City of Oakland and the Port of Oakland, these trucks will service the entire northern California region.
The NorCAL ZERO project is leading the introduction of the Hyundai XCIENT Class 8 FCET into the U.S. market. Hyundai, one of the largest vehicle manufacturers in the world, will bolster the growing domestic supplier base, which is a critical step to achieving cost reductions for zero-emission vehicles. The Hyundai XCIENT Class 8 FCETs have a proven range of more than 400 miles – enough to complete multiple duty cycles. On a single fill of hydrogen, the trucks can run from Oakland to Sacramento, Stockton, Modesto, or as far south as Fresno.
