The Hyundai Motor Company is planning to conduct a test program in Israel for hydrogen-fueled trucks during 2020, according to a report by the Israeli business daily Calcalist.

A delegation from Hyundai visited Israel last month to discuss the project and met with officials in the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the report.

The report went on to state that Israeli car retailer Colmobil Ltd., and transportation and logistics company Taavura Holdings Ltd., are going to carry out the testing.

Hydrogen-fueled vehicles convert hydrogen and oxygen into electricity. Hyundai hydrogen trucks started operating in Europe earlier this year and can drive as far as 400 kilometers before needing to refuel.
