Toyota Tsusho Nexty Electronics Europe GmbH has signed a comprehensive supply contract for Toyota fuel cells with pepper motion GmbH.

The Toyota fuel cell meets all the specific requirements of the commercial vehicle industry. It is characterized by its compact design and robustness. It is suitable for 350-bar tank systems and, due to its long maintenance cycles, has only low maintenance costs. Especially for long-range use in coaches and heavy transport, fuel cell technology is an efficient solution. The Toyota fuel cell is the basis for the hydrogen version of the pepper kit and is now being used for an initial group of 25 hydrogen trucks based on the Mercedes Benz Atego. These are currently being put into operation by Paul Nutzfahrzeuge.

In concluding the contract, Mr. Kakihara, President of Nexty Electronics Corporation, explained: “The realization of Carbon Neutrality is one of the major issues facing society. We hope that this agreement will serve as a means to realize this goal, and we are pleased to be a part of this initiative by pepper motion. We are delighted to co-work with pepper motion as a highly qualified expert in the development of innovative electric drive systems in the commercial vehicle sector above 7.5 t”.

“With our products and developments, we are making an active contribution to reducing emissions in transport towards the major goal of zero emissions and CO2 neutrality – open to technology and geared to the specific requirements of the commercial vehicle sector,” explains Andreas Hager, Managing Director pepper motion GmbH. Who added: “The contract with Toyota is another milestone on the way there and we are very happy to have Toyota, the market leader in the field of fuel cells, on board as a reliable supplier of cutting-edge technology in the commercial vehicle segment.”
