MingZhu aims to roll out 700 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2023

Together with Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Company, a division of Dongfeng Motor Group Company, and Shenzhen Guoqing New Energy Technology Company, MingZhu, which operates a fleet of more than 1,500 trucks and serves 29 regions across China, aims to roll out 700 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by the end of the year.

Mingzhu stated that it would use the vehicles throughout its extensive transportation network, which entails moving cold chain cargo between cities in the Pearl River Delta region, where the Pearl River empties into the South China Sea; moving containers at the Yantian Port Terminal, a deep-water port in Shenzhen, China’s southern Guangdong province; and moving bulk cargo in the outlying Xinjiang region of northwest China.

Unlike electric vehicles, which use batteries to store energy, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles use an onboard fuel cell as their primary power source to produce electricity.

Around 11,200 hydrogen-powered automobiles were on the road globally, according to a data published by the International Energy Agency in June 2019. According to the research, “current government plans call for that number to expand considerably to 2.5 million by 2030.”
