Gaussin currently holds the title of developing the first “skateboard” in the world for class 8 road trucks, tractor or carrier from 18t to 44t, hydrogen or all-electric, a rolling, versatile and modular platform intended for the various market players.
Who would need a hydrogen-powered skateboard? This is aimed at traditional truck manufacturers as well as new entrants in the autonomous navigation software area. Gaussin and partner Microvast are expected to begin building the first prototypes in both full electric and hydrogen version in mid 2021 to test the vehicle performance. Best of all, this platform achieves a range of almost 500-miles with refueling requiring less than 20 minutes.
