Powertrain giant develops hydrogen combustion engine for heavy duty trucks


 

Austrian powertrain specialist AVL is working on an internal combustion engine powered by hydrogen designed to provide heavy trucks with low carbon propulsion at a fraction of the cost of fuel cells. In a press statement, AVL said: “The development project’s target is to increase both the efficiency potential of multi-port and a direct injected hydrogen engine concept for direct propulsion of a commercial vehicle with an existing standard powertrain. AVL used a 12.8 litre natural gas engine for the […]
