Toyota’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell Trucks Put to Work in Port of LA Pilot

Toyota is now running a concept version of the truck along pilot routes that run around 200 miles per day, moving good between depots in the Port of LA and Long Beach.

The pilot is designed to help Toyota see what the impact of frequent cycling of its fuel cell system will do to the packs, as they’ll be refueled often to run the short haul trips. Over time, Toyota plans to conduct longer runs of the truck as well, as part of the overall feasibility study which is also part of the Port of LA’s long-term plans to reduce emissions overall.
