Cenntro Electric Group to unveil Logimax 864 hydrogen powered semi-tractor
Cenntro Electric Group Limited will unveil the Logimax H864 (LMH864), a hydrogen powered Class 8 Semi Tractor, at the upcoming 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) in January 2023 in Las Vegas.
The LMH864 is a 6×4 semi-tractor, representing Cenntro’s first entry into hydrogen fuel cells and first heavy-duty truck. The LMH864 has a total weight of 25 tons and is designed for short- and long-haul applications. The semi-tractor’s electric motors are fully powered by high-efficiency sustainable hydrogen fuel cells with eight 210-liter banks that convert hydrogen into electric power by combining it with oxygen, producing only water as byproduct. The LMH864 will be available in 3Q of 2023 and will launch in North America and Europe initially.
“Beyond our focus on electric powered commercial vehicle lines, we believe that hydrogen fuel cell technology is the best application for heavy duty logistics as it offers longer ranges and faster refueling,” said Peter Wang, Chairman and CEO. “The LMH864 has an operational range and refueling time comparable to many diesel trucks making it suitable for longer distances and heavy, energy-demanding responsibilities in areas where battery charging is limited. The LMH864 will allow Cenntro to provide customers with additional choices for zero emissions in a sustainable vehicle. We look forward to introducing the vehicle to CES attendees along with our full line of electric vehicles.”
The LMH864 will take center-stage at Cenntro’s exhibit in Booth 5840 in the West Hall where Cenntro will display its complete All Electric Commercial product line. The exhibit will include the full Logistar line which features the versatile, compact cargo van, the LS100, the multi-purpose LS200 available in van or box truck configurations, the segment defining LS260 van and the Class 4 LS400 purpose-built for last mile delivery and urban services.
