World first in real life hydrogen


Symbio FCell today announces a groundbreaking project that will result in the rollout of a fleet of 50 hybrid electric/hydrogen-powered utility vehicles, and the construction of two hydrogen filling stations in Lyon and Grenoble, in France.

Tapping in a list of customers in the search of productivity and conformity of their vehicle fleets with forthcoming evolution of the gas emission regulation, Symbio FCell has conducted commercial efforts to demonstrate reliability of its Hydrogen fuel cell range-extender, dedicated to battery-based electric vehicles like Kangoo ZE.

The rollout will take place in the Rhône-Alpes region, where two hydrogen filling stations will be built— in Grenoble and in Lyon, at the early 2015 horizon.

The HyWay project received financial backing of the Rhône-Alpes regional government and the French national energy management (ADEME), as well as of the environment, development, and housing (DREAL) government agencies, and aligns with European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) objectives.
