01 / Cutting Edge

Our ground-breaking Zero Emission  concepts feature an innovative hydrogen-electric drivetrain, requiring minimal maintenance, offering high performance efficiency and include state-of-the-art equipment throughout: including a power dense Fuel Cell System, heavy duty eAxle, pressurised gaseous Hydrogen Storage & Li-Ion Battery technology.

02 / ZE Platform

Our vehicles feature 'Bolt-On' cabs based upon a modular commercial vehicle base platform, that can be offered to the wider commercial vehicle market as a zero-emission chassis platform on which to base other cab and body variants onto - speeding up the technology's introduction into the market. 

03 / Modular

Split into 3 designated zones, our chassis designs facilitate the ability to lengthen/shorten the central and rear sections to provide different wheelbase and rear overhang lengths, tailored to an end-user’s cargo or range requirements. The modularity also permits easy upgrade of the the on-board powertrain components, lengthening the life cycle of the the vehicle’s use.

ABOUT

HVS implement a Systems Integrator approach, combining state-of-the-art subsystems into innovative products offerings, built from ground-up with rapid routes to market. HVS offer:

  • Flexible design development, allowing immediate capture of early adopter public and private sectors niche markets

 

  • We are not constrained by large corporate OEM inertia, allowing for efficient decision making

  • Highly experienced, qualified technical team, with many years collective experience in automotive design & manufacture.

 

  • Established supply chain with state-of-the-art technology partners & suppliers from around the world

  • An experienced in-house team with proven capability to deliver innovative, specialist vehicles.

  • Highly focused product offerings, targeted at design, development & production zero-emission hydrogen-powered medium commercial vehicles

OUR STORY

Founded in 2017, and based in Glasgow; HVS is Europe’s only start-up focused on the design and development of zero-emission hydrogen-powered medium commercial vehicles (MCV) and heavy goods vehicles (HGV).

 

Our team comprises industry specialists, with vast experience in the automotive, energy sustainability and environmental management fields.

 

The vehicles include numerous innovative & unique features, many of which are protected by a series of patents and registered designs. We have received significant interest from potential customers during our vehicle development phase with current pre-orders over 400 units.

MARKET REQUIREMENT

There is currently a strong market pull for zero emission heavy duty transport.

 

European emission reductions of 15% must be met from 2025 and 30% from 2030. However, diesel vehicles still occupy 97.9% of the truck market, and 92.8% of the van market

 

Production & adoption of viable Zero Emission commercial vehicles is not occurring fast enough to meet these targets, heavy duty commercial vehicles contribute disproportionately to Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions.

 

This sector must evolve & change, for emission targets to be achieved.

OUR VISION

We plan to become the first to bring ground-breaking. viable Zero-emission, Long-range, Hydrogen-powered Commercial vehicles to the UK and European market.

We are a focused Systems Integrator,

​combining the latest technology from around the world with our innovative vehicle designs.

 

Our experienced team of automotive, energy sustainability and environmental specialists along with our advanced engagement with cutting edge technology suppliers from around the world, enable us to translate our concepts into reality.

Our ground-breaking Zero Emission  concepts feature an innovative hydrogen-electric drivetrain, requiring minimal maintenance, offering high performance efficiency and include state-of-the-art equipment throughout: including a power dense Fuel Cell System, heavy duty eAxle, pressurised gaseous Hydrogen Storage & Li-Ion Battery technology.
