Hydrogen commercial vehicles can attract fleets by combining a relatively long range with very fast refueling (just five minutes) and zero emissions. Therefore, a joint venture between the Renault group and the American company Plug Power, Hyvia, decided to develop this direction. Following the Renault Master Van H2-Tech van shown in October, the promised brothers Master Chassis Cab H2-Tech and Master City Bus H2-Tech are now presented, capable of covering 250 and 300 km at a single gas station. A petrol station is also offered along with the cars. Newcomer sales will begin in 2022.
Conventional passenger cars with hydrogen gas have not yet become widespread due to a number of factors, including the high price and low number of gas stations. Both are like a vicious circle, largely dependent on the volume of production. The addition of hydrogen commutrans can act as a catalyst. The cost is not critical here, but ease of use with high mileage and minimization of downtime are very important. With an increase in the production of such vehicles, the need for hydrogen fuel will be higher and the cost of key components – fuel cells and cylinders – will decrease. Therefore, recently we have seen exotic hydrogen microvans for city centers, call taxis or drone shuttles.
