Attitude to fuel cell vehicles is increasingly polarised

250 new fuel cell cars hit the road in Germany in 2016 and because of technical development and standardisation, drivetrain production cost has come down 75 percent. And because of the international 700 bar standard, components for H2 fuelling stations dropped around 50 percent.

Breakthrough Huddig hybrid wheel loader in 2018

For light duty there are small wheel loaders and even small excavators that are pure electric. Now many manufacturers are developing or offering wheel loaders or excavators that are hybrid electric including Komatsu, Volvo and Caterpillar. Care is needed however, because this industry sometimes uses the word hybrid to mean a non-electric hybrid of hydraulic and diesel drive.
