Vision F-CELL is an electric concept truck that relies on fuel cell technology to extend the light-duty truck’s range. Fuso premiered the concept at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show which ran from 24 October through 4 November. Fuso also showed off four other commercial vehicles, including the model year 2019 Super Great heavy-duty truck—said to be Japan’s first series-produced commercial vehicle equipped with SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Level 2 automated driving technology.
Fuso first released an all-electric truck back in 2017 with its eCanter; there are currently more than 140 eCanter trucks in service across Japan, Europe, and the United States. The concept light-duty truck with fuel cell technology gives the Vision F-CELL an estimated range of between 270 and 300 kilometres (168 to 186 miles). Fuso rates the Vision F-CELL at a gross vehicle weight of 7.5 tonnes, and the concept truck’s maximum motor power is 135 kilowatts (181 horsepower) with a maximum continuous power of 75 kilowatts (100 horsepower) from the fuel cell technology and 135 kilowatts from the HV battery.
