Honda to Show Hydrogen Fuel Cell Truck Concept, Other Products at ACT Expo


Honda will debut its Class 8 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Truck Concept at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, showcasing the start of a new demonstration project aimed at future production of fuel cell-powered products for the North American market. This exposition will be held May 20-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The company is seeking new business collaborations as it expands its hydrogen business to achieve its global goal of zero environmental impact, including carbon neutrality for all products and corporate activities by 2050.

“Commercial vehicles, including Class 8 trucks, where fuel cells offer the best zero-emission replacement for existing diesel applications, are a key part of Honda’s broad hydrogen business strategy,” says Ryan Harty, assistant vice president, sustainability & business development, American Honda Motor Co. Inc.

The operational Honda Class 8 truck concept is powered by three new Honda fuel cell (FC) systems, now in mass production at Fuel Cell System Manufacturing LLC (FCSM), a joint venture production facility with General Motors (GM) in Brownstown, Michigan. The new FC system is key to the Honda hydrogen business strategy. Co-developed by Honda and GM over the past decade, the Honda FC system advances performance and doubles durability while reducing cost by two-thirds compared with the previous generation system.

Honda has identified four core domains for the initial utilization of its new fuel cell system: fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), commercial fuel cell vehicles, stationary power stations and construction machinery.

Besides the Honda display at ACT Expo, Harty will provide the keynote presentation at the expo’s Ultra Clean Heavy-Vehicle Vehicle Summit on May 22 to provide further details about Honda hydrogen plans.

Honda will showcase these zero-emission products and technologies at its ACT Expo display booth (#1031):

  • Class 8 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Truck Concept.
  • 2025 Honda CR-V e:FCEV, the first production plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle in America.
  • Honda Fuel Cell System at the core of Honda’s strategy to expand the range of applications that use hydrogen toward the decarbonization of society.
  • Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV), a prototype, all-electric off-road vehicle designed to enhance worksite efficiencies and support repetitive tasks.
