“Red Dot has yet again recognized our efforts to transform into a smart mobility solution provider with visionary designs based on diverse technologies. In particular, Trailer Drone is an important model that shows our vision for fully autonomous, hydrogen fuel cell-based commercial vehicles,” commented SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center. “This Luminary award celebrates the passion and efforts of our designers and engineers to make the dream of zero-emission mobility come true”.

What is exactly the Hyundai Trailer Drone concept

Trailer Drone is a hydrogen-powered container transportation system capable of operating fully autonomously. With the number of intelligently packaged hydrogen tanks tailored to the journey profile, the flexible and efficient Trailer Drone ensures more than 1,000 km of sufficient range from a single charge, comparable to existing container transportation systems.
