Could this be the future of trucking?
Fuel cell truck vs. diesel truck. This is like the future taking on the past. Before we get into the test, let’s first talk about what a fuel cell is. A fuel cell takes hydrogen and oxygen and turns it into electricity. In the trial it does great and on paper, it sounds simple, but that’s just half the story. Fuel cells are expensive to make, and there is no industry standard for how they make them and the type of fuel used. The fuel cell truck with the electric engines is much quicker but only time will tell what is better.
