Company Overview

Hyzon Motors

Hyzon was established as a new business of Horizon Fuel Cell. Hyzon is a global supplier of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell powered commercial vehicles, including heavy duty trucks, buses and coaches.

Headquartered in Rochester, NY and with operations in Europe, Singapore, Australia and China, the company is led by Hyzon co-founders George Gu, Craig Knight and Gary Robb and commercializes Horizon’s 17 years of hydrogen technology development for the transport sector.

Hyzon was known as the Heavy Vehicle Business Unit (HVBU) of Horizon and was responsible for the development of fuel cell systems and the delivery of about 500 fuel cell-powered commercial vehicles during 2019 and 2020, leveraging the deep and extensive experience bolstered within the group.

Its establishment as a standalone entity was to focus on accelerating the energy transition through the manufacturing and supply of hydrogen fuel cell-powered commercial vehicles across the North American, European, and Australasian regions.

 

Hyzon currently deploys vehicles with fuel cell modules up to 150 kilowatts (kW), and production will soon commence on the ground-breaking 500 horsepower (hp) modules in the USA at our world-class Rochester, NY fuel cell production facility.

The 500hp fuel cells will provide unparalleled performance for both short and long-haul heavy duty commercial vehicles, and are well-suited to applications such as inter-city rail, mining vehicles, port equipment and marine vessels.
