News unveils specs of new hydrogen-powered truck

17 February 2023 |

Buccaneer has unveiled more specifications and the name for their new hydrogen fuel cell powered truck: ‘Europa’. The zero-emission vehicle is designed as an answer to the most deployed mode of heavy-duty road transportation, the diesel 4×2 tractor unit.

The Europa truck boasts several features that make it a game-changer in the transportation industry. With a long range, sleeper cab, quick refuelling and the ability to pull an ISO trailer (13.6 m / 45 ft container), it offers the same ease of operation and payload capacity as a diesel equivalent. The vehicle is based on a proven chassis from a renowned truck manufacturer.

The Europa truck is another shining example of our commitment to providing sustainable transportation solutions to the market. We’re excited to offer a zero-emission, long-range truck that can compete with its diesel counterparts in terms of payload, performance and usability.

The first vehicles will enter operation in Q4 2023 as 4×2 tractor units with 350 bar hydrogen storage systems. With more than 50 kg of usable hydrogen on board, the vehicles will have a range of more than 700 km. In late 2024, the truck will also become available in a 700-bar hydrogen storage version (>80 kg usable H2), pushing the range to well over 1000 km on a single filling. The full specifications of the Europa truck can be found here.
