Thanks to the ZANZEFF program (Zero-Emission and Near Zero-Emission Freight Facilities) Toyota will be able to take to the streets its project of trucks driven with its hydrogen fuel cell technology. Ten of these trucks will be manufactured for the port of Los Angeles.
In the last two years, the US division of Toyota has introduced two fully functional prototypes of hydrogen-powered heavy-duty trucks. These were models of the American firm Kenworth of Class 8 and had been modified by the Japanese brand with the same Fuel Cell technology used by other vehicles of the brand.
This project is called Project Portal and thanks to the Zero-Emission and Near Zero-Emission Freight Facilities (ZANZEFF) program it will reach the streets, or at least the famous port of Los Angeles, as Toyota and Kenworth will develop a production version of which will be manufactured, at least initially, 10 units.
