Hyundai Trucks look set to make a bigger impact in the global heavy truck market in coming year.

The South Korean brand recently completed an autonomous truck trial and now comes confirmation a fuel cell powered truck is in the works.

Set to be unveiled this month at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Germany, the rigid truck (seen in the render above) is expected to go into production next year.

The hydrogen-powered Hyundai truck will be offered initially in “the European eco-friendly commercial vehicle market” from 2019.

No word yet on whether we will get the offering in Australia, we’ll keep you updated.

In confirming the fuel cell truck would be on hand at the show, Hyundai Trucks was light-on with technical details, promising instead to reveal all at the show (we’ll let you know when details are confirmed).

But they were happy to talk about the “distinctive design” of the truck…

The truck aims at simple and clean design which is also aerodynamically efficient with a spoiler and side protector.

The front grille symbolizes hydrogen through geometric shapes, giving the vehicle a unique and powerful look.

The vehicle emanates an eco-friendly look with an iconic blue color application and a bold side body graphic on the container, which visualizes its dynamic character.

Hyundai has been one of the strongest proponents yet of hydrogen fuel cell technology and already produces SUVs and cars powered by the technology in select markets.
