Hyzon Motors, a global leader in hydrogen fuel cell electric commercial vehicles, has debuted its first hydrogen-powered coach in Brisbane.
Working with leading Queensland-based bus and coach chassis builder BLK Auto, the new hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) coach can seat up to 55 adults, and boasts a range of up to 700-kilometres.
The new FCEV coach was unveiled on Monday in a virtual event by BLK Auto’s Managing Director Jason Pecotic who provided a virtual overview and demonstration of the vehicle.
Hyzon Motors has also announced agreements for refuse collection vehicles and ultra-heavy-duty prime movers, including with Australian manufacturer of waste handling equipment Superior Pak for the supply of 20 refuse collection vehicles to be delivered in 2022, and with Ark Energy for five ultra heavy hydrogen powered trucks for the Townsville-based Sun Metals zinc refinery.
“Zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles provide the operational capabilities of diesel vehicles – long range, significant power – with the environmental benefits of a battery electric vehicle,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Hyzon Motors.
