Reliance Industries unveils India’s first hydrogen combustion engine technology for heavy-duty trucks


Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), India’s largest private sector company, today unveiled the nation’s first hydrogen internal combustion engine technology solution for heavy-duty trucks. The truck was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the India Energy Week in Bangalore.  

The company said the indigenously developed technology solution has the potential to redefine the future of green mobility. The hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2ICE) powered trucks will emit near zero emissions, deliver performance on par with conventional diesel trucks, and reduce noise, with projected reductions in operating costs.

As part of its net-zero carbon emission vision, Reliance with its vehicle partner Ashok Leyland and other technical partners are engaged in developing this unique technology since last year with the first engines running in early 2022.

“Going forward, Reliance will first extensively test and validate the H2ICE technology for heavy-duty trucks before its first commercial deployment at scale initially across its captive fleet. Simultaneously, Reliance is pursuing the opportunity to create an end-to-end hydrogen ecosystem for mobility,” stated Reliance.
