Stellantis is to mass make hydrogen Peugeot, Citroën and Opel mild professional autos at its plant in Hordain, France.

This industrialisation of hydrogen-run gentle professional cars is a new move for Hordain, where 43% of designs for the Peugeot, Citroën, Opel, Vauxhall, Fiat and Toyota brand names are now readily available in a zero-emission electrical edition.

The “K-zero” automobiles with a fuel mobile are intended for extended-length fleets who call for a lengthier selection (400 km), rapid charging in a few minutes and no compromises on charging potential (1000 kg of payload).

Stellantis is the to start with manufacturer in the environment to industry this type of car.

“I’m extremely happy of the function carried out by the administration and staff at Hordain, who have manufactured their web-site the to start with in the earth to combine three sorts of energy, designed possible by the adaptability of our production method,” claimed Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares.

These hydrogen-driven vehicles will be assembled on the site’s multi-energy line, which previously provides the electric powered and combustion engine versions of the “K-Zero” day-to-day.

A devoted crew will put in the tank, the supplemental batteries, and the fuel mobile on a manufacturing line at the Hordain site that halves the adjustment time in contrast to the past tiny-scale system, in which the gas cell was assembled at a pilot workshop in Rüsselsheim.
