Find out more about this technology strategy from Martin Daum, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG and Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, and Sven Ennerst, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG responsible for Development, Procurement and the China Region.

World Premiere: The Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck
Presented by Sven Ennerst, Board Member Daimler Truck AG, responsible for Product Engineering & Procurement and the region China
The Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck is our concept vehicle of a heavy-duty fuel-cell truck for long-haul transport.
It stands for a completely new generation of heavy-duty long-haul trucks and delivers CO2-neutral transport that meets the high demands of our customers in terms of performance, durability, reliability, safety and efficiency.
Like a diesel truck, the GenH2 Truck is designed for a gross weight of 40 tons and a payload of 25 tons. The energy source is hydrogen – our clear preference is liquid hydrogen. Because only with liquid hydrogen, our customers are able to cover a range of up to 1,000 km and more with no need to refill the tanks.
Watch our video for more details.
