Ashok Leyland, in partnership with Reliance Industries, has unveiled its first hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2-ICE) powered heavy duty truck. It was flagged off by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, in Bengaluru on Monday at the India Energy Week.

The 19-35 tonner is powered by hydrogen, while maintaining overall architecture similar to a conventional diesel-based combustion engine. This helps in quicker migration to cleaner energy sources at relatively lower cost delta.

Ashok Leyland and RIL have been developing the technology over the past year and it has been under test since August 2022. N Saravanan, President and Chief Technology Officer, Ashok Leyland, said, “Our aim is to make India’s alternative fuel segment self-reliant and be one of the flag bearers of the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ campaign.”
