Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Hino Motors, Ltd. (Hino) have agreed to jointly develop a heavy-duty fuel cell truck, and to proceed with initiatives toward its practical use through verification tests and other means.
The chassis is specially designed with the optimum packaging for a fuel cell vehicle, and steps are being taken through comprehensive weight reduction to ensure a sufficient load capacity.

The StreetDeck FCEV uses a Ballard FCVelocity fuel cell, a Siemens drivetrain and 48kW traction battery pack. The system delivers a 200-mile (322km) operating range, and a 265-mile (426km) extended storage option is also available. Refueling the bus takes approximately seven minutes.
The Safe Light Regional Vehicle (SLRV) is notable for its exceptionally lightweight yet very safe body, built using a sandwich construction.
With a range of around 400 kilometres based on compact electrical transmission powered by a fuel cell, the SLRV should serve primarily as a car for commuters and those travelling from A to B. For instance, getting from the outskirts into the city centre or travelling about in the area around the city – in other words, anywhere that local public transport does not offer comprehensive coverage.
