Cenntro Plans to Unveil Hydrogen-Fuel-Cell Truck at CES

Cenntro Electric Group Limited, an electric commercial vehicle manufacturer, plans to unveil a new hydrogen-fuel-cell Class 8 tractor at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show taking place January 5-8, 2023 in Las Vegas.

The Logimax H864 is a 6×4 semi-tractor and is not only Cenntro’s first entry into hydrogen fuel cells, but also its first heavy-duty truck. It will feature eight 210-liter banks which will convert hydrogen into electric power by combining it with oxygen, producing only water as byproduct. The company plans to launch the LMH864 in North America and Europe in the third quarter of 2023.

“Beyond our focus on electric-powered commercial vehicle lines, we believe that hydrogen fuel cell technology is the best application for heavy-duty logistics, as it offers longer ranges and faster refueling,” said Peter Wang, chairman and CEO, in the announcement. “The LMH864 has an operational range and refueling time comparable to many diesel trucks, making it suitable for longer distances and heavy, energy-demanding responsibilities in areas where battery charging is limited.”

The company also plans to unveil a new all-electric commercial van, the Logistar 300 (LS300), at CES.
