Hyundai Motor has unveiled its concept car called "Neptune" for hydrogen-only large-sized trucks in the U.S. market, which leads the global commercial vehicle market.

Hyundai Motor made an announcement on Oct. 29 that it has unveiled the concept car "HDC-6 Neptune" for the first time at the "2019 North American Commercial Vehicle Show" held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta on Oct. 28 (local time).

Its sleek, rounded front part and sleek, all-in-one structure feature an original design that is specialized for hydrogen-powered trucks.

The exterior design was inspired by the streamlined New York Central Railway locomotive designed in the 1930s by the first-generation American industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss.

The head lamps, which cross the left and right sides, represent Hyundai's hydrogen electric vehicle technology, along with the hydrogen electric vehicle "Nexo." A grill covering the lower part helps improve visual satisfaction and air performance.

"Hydrogen-electric commercial vehicles are not the future without substance, but they are already real and current driving on the road," said Lee In-cheol, head of Hyundai Motor's commercial business division. "Hyundai's hydrogen-electric commercial vehicles with excellent quality and stability will play an important role in the global commercial vehicle market in the future."

Hyundai Motor also announced its vision to lead a paradigm shift in the future eco-friendly commercial vehicle market. Under the mid- to long-term hydrogen roadmap called "FCEV Vision 2030," the company plans to establish a production system for 500,000 hydrogen electric vehicles by 2030 and supply about 200,000 hydrogen fuel cell systems to the outside world.

"We are closely looking into opportunities for Hyundai commercial vehicles to enter the U.S. market," Lee said. "We are planning to establish a hydrogen energy ecosystem through various strategic partnerships in the future."
