The EMPOWER project aims to develop two flexible, modular, and scalable zero-emission heavy-duty vehicles (ZE HDV). One vehicle will be 100% electric for regional deliveries (400 km range), while the other will be a hybrid fuel cell and battery-powered for long-haul distances (750 km range). Both vehicles will undergo a 6-month demonstration at TRL8 on European roads and International corridors, with development led by an experienced consortium of academic and industrial partners from Europe.
