Toyota has announced plans to introduce a hydrogen fuel-cell powered semi in the United States. The Class 8 trucks will be based on the recently introduced XL series tractor from Toyota-owned Hino and use a zero-emission powertrain that Toyota has been testing since 2017. "Expanding upon our proud heritage of the Hino powertrain, Toyota Fuel Cell Technology offers our customers a commercially viable, extended range, zero-emissions vehicle in the near term," said Glenn Ellis, Hino senior vice president of customer experience, said in a press release.

Toyota has not yet detailed its operational plans for the new truck, but will begin testing it in early 2021.
