Mewa delivers the first Hyundai 4×2 hydrogen truck for Germany for bodywork


Hydrogen mobility in heavy transport is gaining momentum. Mewa, the Europe-wide specialist in textile sharing, is also focusing on zero emission in mobility. Following the two Hyundai XCIENT Fuel Cell in Switzerland, Mewa is preparing the first 4×2 hydrogen electric truck for use in northern Germany. On September 1, the handover for the assembly of the vehicle took place in Switzerland, in the presence of Kay Simon (Mewa), Daniel Keller (HHM) and Christian Galli (GK Grünenfelder).

Mewa, the group of companies operating throughout Europe, has long relied on environmentally friendly materials and processes in its core competence, as well as on the circular economy. With the same consistency, the specialist in textile sharing also relies on the environmentally friendly solution with hydrogen-electric commercial vehicles in the transport sector.
