Why produce the HDC-6 NEPTUNE?
Hyundai is dedicated to working towards manufacturing vehicles that are zero-emission and doing their part in lessening carbon emissions. In looking towards the future, this truck is a great option for truck drivers because of the long distances that these trucks travel, the fact that these vehicles do not need to fuel as often, and that they will cost less.
The Hyundai Translead Nitro ThermoTech® Concept
In addition to releasing the commercial truck, Hyundai also released a concept trailer that would be used for transporting cold items. The temperatures in the trailer get cooler quicker, are better maintained, and the trailer is more efficient overall.
The trailer is one piece and made from Fiber Reinforced Polymer skins. There are no roof bows and no posts. This helps keep the weight of the trailer down.
This truck and trailer sure are fascinating! While these are only concept vehicles at this time, it is fun to think about how vehicles are always changing. We are not sure at this time if or when this vehicle will make its debut on the road. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled!
