Tatra Trucks achieved sales of CZK 7.12bn in 2022, up 10% y/y. It delivered 1,326 vehicles to customers, which is more than in previous years. The production of trucks for the defence segment slightly exceeded the production of civilian vehicles. Tatra Trucks CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors Pavel Lazar specified that a significant part of the production consisted of logistics vehicles for the Czech and Belgian armies and firefighting specials for the German market. Tatra Trucks research and development director Radomír Smolka added that the company was developing a hybrid vehicle with a Tatra engine and generator and a battery vehicle with an internal combustion engine. It is working with the Czech Technical University on a Tatra hydrogen engine. Both innovations could go into series production in 2024 or 2025.
