Daimler Trucks is pushing ahead with the preparations for the planned fuel cell cooperation with the truck manufacturer Volvo. In a new subsidiary, the group brings together all activities related to the fuel cell under one roof.
This will then later become the planned joint venture, with the Volvo Group taking over half of it, as Daimler announced on Monday. Daimler and Volvo announced in April that they would work together on the development of fuel cell drives for heavy commercial vehicles.
The technology should be available in series production in the second half of the decade. Daimler is also planning a cooperation with the engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce Power Systems in the area of stationary fuel cell systems.
