Plug to Revolutionize Middle-Mile Delivery with Class 6 Fuel Cell Electric Truck Integration

LATHAM, N.Y., May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a global leader in hydrogen solutions for the green hydrogen economy, has announced its latest innovation: the integration of a Class 6, medium-duty fuel cell electric truck. The integration involves a commercial Class 6 chassis cab with an industry proven electric propulsion system powered by Plug’s cutting-edge ProGen fuel cell technology and seamlessly integrated with an industry proven electric propulsion system.

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) are powered by hydrogen and are more efficient than conventional internal combustion engine vehicles. Plug's ProGen technology generates no harmful tailpipe emissions, emitting only water vapor and warm air.

Designed specifically for middle-mile deliveries, this vehicle is engineered for unprecedented range benchmarks of up to 500 miles, a significant advantage compared to battery electric vehicles. This extended range not only enhances operational efficiency but also reduces the need for frequent downtime associated with battery recharging, resulting in saved time and resources.

Beyond its extended range tailored for optimal payload capacity crucial to middle-mile deliveries, this vehicle distinguishes itself from many other heavy-duty counterparts by not requiring a commercial driver's license (CDL) for operation, offering a more accessible solution for adoption in operations.

“Plug continues to lead charge in developing and deploying hydrogen fuel cell solutions for electric vehicle platforms," said Plug CEO Andy Marsh. “Our ProGen engine, built on decades of operational experience, offers unmatched benefits for middle-mile delivery—range, rapid fueling, cargo volume optimization, and higher power densities.”

The product is currently in its final integration and testing phase and is expected to commence on-road operational pilots this summer in collaboration with Plug’s key market leader logistics customers. This next phase will provide valuable real-world data and feedback, further optimizing the truck's performance for commercial deployment.
