Daimler Truck began testing Actros tractor on liquid hydrogen

This summer, Daimler Truck is testing an Actros liquid hydrogen tractor.

“Daimler Truck continues to work on a strategy to move towards the production of exclusively CO2-neutral trucks until 2039. In addition to the eActros battery-electric vehicles already launched in series, the company is also working on hydrogen models,” the message says.

It holds 40 kg of fuel supplied from the newly built station in Werth in its two tanks. The hydrogen storage temperature is minus 253 degrees, so special attention is paid to the thermal insulation of the tanks. They promise a power reserve of 1000 km and even more.

An even more advanced technology, Supercooled Hydrogen (sLH2), is currently being developed with another company to make refueling easier.

Daimler Truck AG is one of the world's largest truck manufacturers with more than 35 main sites worldwide and around 100,000 employees. Daimler Truck AG is headquartered in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany.
