Peugeot launches production of the H2 transporter E-Expert Hydrogen-transporter

A few days ago, Peugeot ran the first hydrogen vehicle from the band: an e-expert Hydrogen. Peugeot is thus one of the first manufacturers, which also offers a version with hydrogen fuel cell in the segment of light commercial vehicles alongside wheels and electrified models. “With the Peugeot E-Expert Hydrogen, Peugeot assumes the lead in a future emission-free technology that is particularly relevant to the market of light commercial vehicles”, says Linda Jackson, Global CEO Peugeot.

Hydrogen electrical engineering enabled Jackson, according to an intensive daily use without reloading – a crucial advantage for working professionals who have to cover several hundred kilometers on the highway for several hundred kilometers and then enter emission-restricted urban areas. “The hydrogen technology developed by Stellantis, which is used in our Peugeot E-Expert Hydrogen, makes such missions possible.”

The van of Peugeot is characterized by the good integration of the entire “mid-power plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric” system in engine compartment and underbody. The result: no compromises during loading volume and a low center of gravity, stability, security and agility guarantee. Now the first deliveries of the Peugeot E-Expert can start hydrogen (not yet available at the time of this message). The first customer who is supplied before the turn of the year is Watea by Michelin, a young subsidiary of the Michelin Group, which specializes in green mobility solutions.

The hydrogen transporter is the recent symbol for the brand’s Extended Power Choice strategy, which enables customers to choose from a wide range of drives that meet their individual needs. The e-expert hydrogen is based on the battery-powered e-expert. He is initially produced in France at Hordain location and then built in Germany in Russelsheim on the production facilities of the Competence Center Stellantis for hydrogen technology.

The Peugeot E-Expert Hydrogen consists of the following components: a fuel cell generated by means of the hydrogen in the tank of the electricity required for the drive of the vehicle, a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 10.5 kWh, which over the Current grid can be charged and the electric motor drives in certain driving phases.

Within three minutes, enough hydrogen can be fueled for more than 400 kilometers of route, so the manufacturer. The top speed is 130 km / h. The vehicle is available in two lengths, with the same loading volume properties such as the diesel and battery electrical versions: up to 6.1 cubic meters of charging volume, up to 1000 kilograms of payload, up to 1.000 kilogram trailer load.

With the announcement of various international projects, hydrogen is now becoming an important pillar of the energy transition, peugeot shares. Ecosystem grows mainly in Europe, and the European Alliance for clean hydrogen invests an estimated 60 billion euros to promote this solution.

  1. The cart goes as a BEV at 50.000 € Lot ..

    what kind of food is only the PHEV variant -.-

    Who wants to afford?
    If the other hybrids from the assortment are liked to be taken, otherwise no one can afford.

    And the few buy the pair of such a vehicle will tell all other H2 disciples at the latest after the first inspection that this will be too expensive and you will never do that again.

    It remains exciting

  2. It would be nice if the manufacturers finally say what this hydrogen fun costs, but the manufacturers are silent or provide only leasing or make them with every FCEV thick losses.

    At BEV, no secret is made from the battery prices. At FCEV, I can not find any prices for Neither BZ systems nor the H2 tanks. In addition, the price is set to the H2 petrol stations and is not subject to the market economy as with the charging stations – why actually?

  3. Other rising from the dead horse – Stellantis makes another saddle on it!
    have too much money?

    MAN upload this ancillary time and drive a mountain up. Then this cute buffer battery is empty and you have to stop. Then, Gaaanz slowly recharged from the fuel cell (is the intended)
    And where is the H2 tank?? At the BEV every socket goes ..

  4. On the topic of hydrogen in vehicles and general, there are many videos on YouTube.

    The interviews with Professor Dr. Maximilian Ficherner (Director Helmholtz Institute Ulm), which has both experiences with hydrogen as well as batteries, are very enlightening.

    • There is not enough green hydrogen on foreseeable time, in addition to the industry, which urgently needs him for achieving the CO2 goals, even vehicles.
    • In addition to the low efficiency of FCEV to BEV and the associated high eco-electricity consumption, it is also the high maintenance costs that FCEV expensive.
    • For cars with hydrogen tanks all 10.000 km carried out a safety test of the lines of the hydrogen system, as hydrogen can be dangerous in leaks.
    • Trains operating with fuel cells have 38% higher costs compared to battery-powered trains, if you expect everything together, ie higher purchase price, power consumption and maintenance costs as well as the premature exchange of fuel cells.
    • Tank times at FCEV are only short, if no other FCEV has previously fueled, otherwise only over 1000 bar pressure must be built up and the hydrogen is cooled to -40 ° C.

    For E-Fuels, it looks even worse, here you would need the double amount of green electricity and thus twice the number of PV and wind turbines, to get exactly as far as with an FCEV.

    For batteries, the volume and weight as well as at price is clearly down, on critical substances such as cobalt and probably also on lithium can be increasingly dispensed with. In production, 100% eco flow is increasingly being used, so the CO2 backpack goes to zero for batteries.

    The FCEV probably will remain a more expensive experience of the manufacturer and maybe as a small niche.
