With the Master H2-TECH panel van and a hydrogen filling station, the Hyvia joint venture is presenting the first two near-series prototypes for a comprehensive ecosystem for carbon-free mobility. The Transporter H2-Tech is the first of three lightweight commercial vehicles with fuel cell drive, which wants to bring the joint venture of the Renault Group and the US company Plug Power from 2022 to market. The easy-to-use hydrogen filling station ensure fast and secure tank operations within five minutes, as the manufacturer announces.
“I am pleased to introduce our first hydrogen prototypes,” says David Holderbach, CEO Hyvia. “Hyvia stands for tailor-made hydrogen solutions as well as a comprehensive ecosystem for carbon-free mobility. Our strength is our agility that combines the competences of two leading companies: Renault Group and Plug Power.”
In addition to a 33 kWh battery, the Master H2-TECH van has a 30 kW fuel cell and produces no CO2 emissions during operation. The four tanks – directly over the driver’s cabin on the roof – cover 1.5 kilograms of hydrogen each. Overall, ranges of up to 500 kilometers are possible, 100 kilometers in pure battery operation. Thus, the spacious transporter with a loading volume of twelve cubic meters is ideal for use in logistics companies, large customers, fleets and municipalities. At a later date, the master platform chassis H2-Tech followed with 19 cubic meters of charging capacity and a range of 250 kilometers and the master Combi H2-Tech, a minibus for up to 15 people with a range of around 300 kilometers.
According to the manufacturer, the hydrogen filling station from Hyvia enables quick and safe refueling processes as with vehicles with conventional petrol or diesel engines: the Master H2-TECH van is ready for use again within five minutes. The hydrogen is produced either on site by water electrolysis or supplied with tank trucks. Hyvia hydrogen tank stations are offered for sale, leasing or rent.

Do not weigh a tank 150kg of 4cm thick non-recycleful CFK? So 400km range requires 600kg tank plus 200kg fuel cell with secondary devices / filters / temp.management?
At least a 30 kWh fuel cell is used and not like the flatbed by Quantron only a saving version with 15 kW, which only allowed about 160 km in a piece.
The version with 6 kg H2 and a battery with 33 kWh are likely to reach for up to 500 km.
In the platform chassis, there are probably space problems to accommodate the H2 tanks, so only 250 km.
At the minibus, higher weight of the vehicle for 15 persons with higher H2 consumption come together, so that there should also be space problems for the additional H2 tanks.
It would be interesting for me whether the H2 vehicles are offered for sale to learn the price.
There are only for the transporter H2 tanks with 7 kg of hydrogen for up to 500 km range. The other models must be satisfied with 250 – 300 km, apparently difficult enough space for the tanks to find.
Since I praise the BEV, a larger battery pack can be easily accommodated and cheaper it is too.
