PACCAR will supply a hydrogen fuel cell T680 Kenworth prime mover, featuring a Toyota hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrain offering 470hp, with a claimed range of 560km and a 15-minute refuel time.

On the DAF side, attendees will be able to drive an all-electric DAF LF featuring a 260kW electric motor powered by a 282kWh battery pack.

Both vehicles will take part in TruckShowX’s Drive Day program through which attendees will have the chance to experience an on-road ride in as many as eight low- and zero-emissions vehicles – some as driver and others as passenger.

“It is incredible to see the enthusiastic support that all facets of HVIA’s membership base have for decarbonisation initiatives, and PACCAR’s initiatives are no exception,” says HVIA chief technical officer Adam Ritzinger.

“Giving TruckShowX attendees the opportunity to get behind the wheel of these vehicles is part of what the event is all about, and we are thrilled to be able to showcase what may be coming in the future from our local manufacturers.”
