European hydrogen mobility solutions company Symbio has revealed a fuel cell integration plan for 5-7 seat Nissan electric vehicles for ultimate freedom at zero emissions to beat air pollution in urban areas, and with hopes to take the vehicle to the European market soon.
At the unveiling of Symbio’s fuel cell integration to Nissan electric van, at the FC Expo 2017 in Tokyo, Japan, the company announced the new plug-in hybrid hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will deliver at least 500 km of range – an important move from Symbio and a promising breakthrough for fleet managers and the automotive community looking for sustainable growth.
The FC vehicle introduced is a 100% clean solution for taxis, aimed at the EU market. The customised e-NV200 offers taxi drivers a similar total cost of ownership to a hybrid taxi, but with the range of an internal combustion engine. Thus, this vehicle could be used for intensive urban taxi operations or for online passenger transportation network services. It can be recharged from a low-cost power supply, and refuelled with hydrogen in three minutes (3,8 kg Hydrogen).
This customised e-NV200 will be available for serial production from September 2018. Interested parties will be able to place pre-orders, by sending a request to Symbio.
FC Expo was the opportunity for Symbio to showcase their sustainable mobility solutions to its full, more particularly showing the capacity to produce fuel cells from 5 kW to 300 kW.
