Honda debuted a Class 8 hydrogen fuel-cell truck concept - a Peterbilt Model 579EV battery-electric tractor retrofitted with three new Honda fuel cell (FC) systems - at the 2024 Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo on May 20. Honda announced plans for the proof-of-concept truck in January when production began at General Motors' and Honda's joint venture Fuel Cell System Manufacturing, LLC (FCSM) facility in Brownstown, Michigan.

Honda says the commercial truck kicks off a new demonstration project aimed at expanding production of fuel-cell-powered products for the North American market. The OEM is seeking collaborations with medium- and heavy-duty truck manufacturers, as well as partners and customers in other domains that show potential for fuel-cell applications. Honda did not partner with Peterbilt on the concept truck.
