Hyzon plans doubling hydrogen truck production-doubling

The US company Hyzon Motors specializing in the production of hydrogen commercial vehicles, gives an insight into its largest production site in a recent communication, the Hyzon Motors Europe plant in Winschoten, Netherlands. The plant was opened in March 2021 and currently has a production capacity of up to 500 H2 trucks per year. In 2022, the company assumes that the capacity can increase the capacity through some updates and the introduction of a second shift to up to 1000 fuel cell trucks per year.

Hyzon is currently reporting more and more customers for its hydrogen-powered electrical commercial vehicles in the monthly rhythm. Finally, among other things, the delivery of more than 20 H2 trucks into the Netherlands, the order of 70 vehicles of the Austrian supermarket chain MPRAZ and a letter of intent with the Asian logistics company Shanghai Hydrogen Hongyun Automotive is known about the purchase of 500 hydrogen-powered electric trucks.

The plant in the Netherlands should be Hyzons European turntable for vehicle assembly as well as for the development of new vehicle technologies, such as a new, easy-to-mount and light hydrogen storage system, which has recently introduced the start-up. The environment in the northern Netherlands is also one of the first regions in Europe, which receives subsidies for the development and construction of a fully functional green hydrogen economy. In addition, Winchoten is strategically promising: close to an international guest friend, a large freight railway station and close to Germany with its well-developed motorway network, which allows easy export to other EU countries, as Hyzon announces.

“The dynamics around hydrogen grows quickly throughout Europe,” is craig Knight, CEO of Hyzon, quoted in a recent message. The work in Winschoten allows the company to “react to this demand today and to scale quickly when demand increases in the coming years,” Knight continues.

  1. Great message.
    It is becoming increasingly clear that hydrogen trucks / commercial vehicles are very likely to play a big role. The worldwide interest, from Europe to North America and Asia to Australia and New Zealand, is immense according to my current level of knowledge.
    And comes the infrastructure for commercial vehicles, the EU wants to make it mandatory in the Fit for 55 anyway that hydrogen tank stations must be built at certain intervals, then the cars are becoming more and more interesting.

    The future becomes more of a mix or. a coexistence and no counterkeeper, both in commercial vehicles (and public transport) as well as at cars.

  2. It seems a hype to give the H2 trucks – why?

    Apparently, battery electric trucks are “boring” or. They can be produced too easily and too cheap, Z.B. Also from used diesel trucks for almost 220.000 Euro, see

    How many kilometers are driven by the truck? – please refer

    Inland Carrier 2014 structured according to the vehicle group and territory of the driving performance provision



    Total 63.875.700.000 km – middle driving performance per truck 23.891 km.


    Total 19.309.500.000 km – medium driving performance per tractor machine 99.692 km.

    Annotation: The data from 2014 was only published in 2017 at the Federal Institute for Roads.

    For trucks and 220 working days a year, it would be on average 109 km a day.

    For semi-tractors and 220 working days a year, it would be 453 km per day.

    For most of the trucks, 200 – 350 km are enough (To the law. Pause approx. 315 km a.D. Freeway).
