Volvo will build trucks that burn hydrogen

BMW and Toyota are experimenting with it – and now Volvo is jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to burning hydrogen.

If the transport of the future is really to run on something other than petrol and diesel, the big question is – what?

Volvo Trucks has an offer. Namely, trucks that burn hydrogen with 'ordinary' internal combustion engines. And in fact, Volvo has more than just a bid.

The truck manufacturer wants to start the development and production of this type of heavy vehicle transport. And that makes good sense and is needed, the bosses believe.

– Trucks that retain a traditional internal combustion engine but run on hydrogen will have the same performance and reliability as our diesel trucks, but with the advantage that it can potentially become CO2 neutral, says Jan Hjelmgren, product and quality manager at Volvo Trucks.

Volvo will have the first trucks that burn hydrogen on the roads as early as the beginning of 2026. Initially, however, only in a test phase. An actual launch and full-scale production will not happen until the end of this decade.

In the meantime, Volvo Trucks will continue to develop both gas, battery and diesel powered trucks. However, the people of Sweden are not the only ones with such ideas.

Toyota also believes that hydrogen can be burned in passenger cars. In fact, the Japanese are so advanced with the development that they already have cars (albeit outside of assembly line production) that do it. BMW is also involved. The Germans' hydrogen-powered SUV X5 is actually cheaper than the diesel version. Read more about it here .
