Daimler has explained the latest truck’s two 40kg tanks are set to be filled with cryogenic liquid hydrogen at minus 253oC (-487oF), with goals of reaching a range of 1,000km (621 miles) or more, to meet heavy-duty long-haul transport demands.

The company says it has been testing a gaseous hydrogen-fuelled Mercedes GenH2 truck since 2021, however sees its future utilising the clean energy carrier in its liquid form due to its higher energy density.
