Hyundai, eager to explore commercial trucking opportunities in the US, has debuted a hydrogen-powered Class 8 heavy truck, the HDC-6 Neptune Concept, and a green-energy refrigerated trailer, the HT Nitro ThermoTech Concept. Both are being shown at the North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) show.

With the concepts, especially the HDC-6 Neptune truck, Hyundai is looking at potential changes to the commercial market for short- and long-haul needs. The truck is optimized to deliver both aerodynamics and driver-friendliness, with an eye towards future automation in the sector.
