UPS claimed the first-ever hydrogen fuel-cell powered zero-emission Class 6 delivery vehicle at ACT Expo 2017 in Long Beach, showing a converted 2006 package car with
- an HyPM-HD30 fuel cell system by Hydrogenics,
- a highly efficient, 227-kilowatt (304-horsepower) switch-reluctance motor by Nidec,
- a P40-24 lithium iron magnesium phosphate battery module by Valence Technology, and
- high-pressure fuel cylinders by Luxfer.
