The Hyundai Motor Group unveiled plans to roll out hydrogen-based technology and mobility solutions for transport and other industrial sectors by 2040 as many countries aim to become carbon neutral by the middle of this century. 

South Korea’s second-biggest conglomerate aims to have all of its new commercial vehicles, such as buses and heavy-duty trucks, run on either batteries or fuel cells by 2028, becoming the world’s first automaker to do so, Group Chairman Euisun Chung said Tuesday at the company’s first day to showcase its hydrogen technology to investors. It’s also working on some concept hydrogen mobility solutions that could be used at ports, on rescue missions and trams.
