Toyota To Make Fuel Cell Modules For Hydrogen Big Rigs At Kentucky Plant

Alan Ohnsman of Forbes writes about Toyota’s efforts to make fuel cells for hydrogen-powered big rigs.

The C3 Take
  • The automaker will begin production of the electrochemical devices in 2023 in its Georgetown, Kentucky plant.
  • Toyota already has one hydrogen-powered vehicle on the market, the Mirai, but it has not seen much commercial success outside of California.
  • Toyota is claiming that its use of green hydrogen for these trucks will deliver 300 miles of range with zero emissions.
  • Free markets, not mandates, are delivering clean energy innovations.

“Toyota’s fuel cell system for commercial vehicles ‘delivers over 300 miles of range at a full load weight of 80,000 pounds, all while demonstrating exceptional drivability, quiet operation and zero harmful emissions,’ David Rosier, head of powertrain at Toyota Kentucky, said in a statement.”
