Symbio, the French designer and manufacturer, has integrated its fuel cell into the Japanese manufactured Nissan electric vehicles to create a new electric-hydrogen (H2) hybrid.
Symbio is responding to the current market’s needs, exploring a new market segment - duty vehicles - to contribute towards mobility solutions and a more sustainable environment.
Taxis in particular have been identified as a major source of air pollution in city centres, and more regulations are applied to limit emissions in urban areas.
Based on Japanese OEM platform, the converted e-NV200 is a 700-bar hybrid plug-in– H2 vehicle with more than 500 km of range. This vehicle can be refuelled in minutes and is fully connected. This is apparently the best options for taxis to drive daily without any range restrictions and/or polluting air in urban areas.
Symbio will unveil the new Nissan electric- H2 hybrid from the 1st of March at FC Expo 2017, East Hall 7, Tokyo Big Sight, Booth E63-42.
Ballard Power Systems has announced its involvement in the ‘Fuel Cell Electric Commercialisation Consortium’ (FCEBCC), a large-scale project for which funding has now been committed to support deployment of 20 zero-emission hydrogen (H2) fuel cell electric buses at two California transit agencies.
The Department of Trade and industry (TDI) has partnered with the German government in an effort to roll out hydrogen (H2)-powered buses in South Africa.
