positive changes in the logistics market
with differentiated product power and
marketing strategies. "
The B-X electric forklift will first be
released in Korea and emerging markets
(Asia, Middle East, Africa). " After
examining market reactions, we will
consider launching them in the U.S. and
European market, " the spokesperson
shared. This strategy follows how " other
optimal premium forklifts have been
released in U.S. and European markets. "
Developing fuel-cell forklifts
Hyundai CE announced in August it will
develop small-sized forklifts powered
by hydrogen fuel cells supplied by
South Korean manufacturer S-Fuelcell
Co. The companies plan to commercialize
the 1- to 3-ton forklifts by 2023.
According to the agreement, Hyundai
CE will be responsible for the production
of hydrogen forklifts and power pack
control and communication systems.
S-Fuelcell will develop and produce the
hydrogen fuel-cell power packs. The fuel-cell
power pack is expected to work

series forklifts

batteries.
for up to 8 hours on a single charge
based on stable output performance.
This development follows the aforementioned
mid-sized hydrogen forklifts
that Hyundai CE developed in 2020 in
cooperation with Hyundai Mobis and
Hyundai Motor Co. The 5-ton fuel-cell
forklift is undergoing trials in Korea, with
commercialization also expected by 2023.
The mid-to-large-sized forklift is fitted
with a " first of its kind in the world "
hydro fuel cell system produced by
Hyundai Motor Group. The machine can
lift up to 5 tons of cargo and be operated
continuously for 5 hours when its
hydrogen fuel cell is fully charged.
Hyundai Mobis developed a customized
hydrogen fuel-cell system for the 5-ton forklift
prototype that is planned for commercial
launch by 2023.
The power pack serves as a generator
that generates electricity for the
hydrogen fuel-cell forklift. The system
has integrated components including a
fuel cell stack, a high-voltage battery, a
hydrogen tank and a cooling device.
The companies noted that the hydrogen
fuel-cell system used for automobiles
could not be applied to its hydrogen
fuel-cell forklift, so Hyundai Mobis
developed a customized system for it.
Hyundai Mobis and affiliates also are

pilot projects, the companies plan to
launch the excavator by 2023.
