Electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Cenntro Electric Group Limited plans to unveil a hydrogen-fuel-cell Class 8 tractor at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Jan. 5-8, 2023, in Las Vegas. 

The Logimax H864 is a 6x4 semi-tractor, representing Cenntro’s first entry into hydrogen fuel cells and its 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 powered by high-efficiency sustainable hydrogen fuel cells. Eight 210-liter banks convert hydrogen into electric power by combining it with oxygen, producing only water as byproduct. The LMH864 will be available in the third quarter 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, in the announcement. “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 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 company also plans to unveil a new all-electric commercial van, the Logistar 300 (LS300), at CES.
