To increase their range, these vehicles have been fitted with a hydrogen system, which converts the gas into electricity with just pure water as a waste product. This allows the vehicles to be used 24 hours a day whilst remaining quiet and clean.
E-Trucks Europe has observed an increase in demand for hydrogen refuse lorries from local governments, particularly for the urban collection of rubbish. Often there is also demand for hydrogen cars. E-Trucks Europe wants to play a promotional role in creating the demand for hydrogen-powered mobility, by informing clients of this clean form of transport. They also want to develop a brand independent concept to maintain and repair truck and car hydrogen systems. Only an extremely limited number of dealers currently possess the expertise and facilities to do this.
