The Neptune symbolizes natural elements of the universe. These elements have an abundance of hydrogen. In fact, it is the largest potential source of hydrogen on earth.

In addition, Hyundai is aiming to sell these trucks worldwide starting from Switzerland. The commercial trucking has a clear link with carbon emission. The company is focusing on this segment for the exact same reason. Hyundai wants to create a carbon-neutral society.

Design

The overall design matches with road-proven Xcient fuel cell truck from Hyundai. The Hyundai HDC-6 Neptune has a large front windshield. So, it simply dominates above all. The LED screen in the front grill is very useful to showcase information.

Furthermore, the steps leading to the cabin can tuck away. So, it simply improves the overall design and aerodynamics. This concept-truck design meets the current standards. Hence, it has a design that matches the real-world requirements. It also follows regulations like a 41-foot turning radius requirement. While designing these, a truck company takes global standards into consideration.
