Gigi Carbon Neutrality (GCN) has announced plans to launch 21 zero-emission commercial vehicles by the end of 2023.
The clean trucking and technology company will launch 21 different battery-electric and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles to market over the next two years.
GCN says these will cover a wide range of commercial use cases and includes a tractor unit, buses and last-mile logistics vehicles .
The company’s first prototype hydrogen-fuelled tractor unit is currently undergoing advanced road and usability trials in China.
GCN designs its vehicles at a research and development centre located in Hangzhou, China.
It has developed its own proprietary hydrogen fuel-cell technology and will source batteries from leading manufacturers initially.
The GCN vehicles are manufactured using lightweight stainless steel and composite materials to improve safety and deliver reductions in weight and energy consumption of at least 10%.
The bodies of GCN vehicles are designed to last for 20 years.
Several GCN vehicles are available to order now, with delivery times of between three and 12 months.
The initial range includes:
- The GCN Hydrogen Tractor: A 44-tonne hydrogen fuel-cell truck with a top speed of 90 kph and 580 km range. A prototype of this vehicle is already on the road in China.
- The GCN City Bus: A 12-metre transit bus for urban public transport. Capable of carrying up to 95 passengers, GCN’s city bus has a 350km range on a battery-electric power train. This vehicle is designed to meet European Union approved standards for use in its 27 member states.
- The GCN Pure Electric Minibus: A 6.9-metre battery-electric minibus with an ultra-long wheelbase and flat floor structure to provide capacity for up to 13 passengers. GCN’s minibuses have a 240 km range on a single charge and are already being used on the road in Hong Kong.
- The GCN Electric Logistics Vehicle: An eight-tonne battery-electric truck to support last-mile logistics in urban and rural areas. It can cover 250 km on a single charge
