Hyzon Motors’ first hydrogen fuel cell electric coach on the roads of Brisbane, Australia
ROCHESTER, NY, November 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Hyzon Motors Inc. (NASDAQ: HYZN), a leading supplier of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles, unveiled its first zero-emission fuel cell electric commercial coach in Brisbane Last week. It is also the first fuel cell electric coach Australia.
The coach made its first refueling at a hydrogen refueling station in Redlands shortly after arriving, before being showcased via a virtual launch event.
The coach, which can accommodate 50 passengers, has a range of up to 430 miles (700 km) and a prime mover of 350 kilowatts. This is the first of an order for ten cars to be delivered in Australia; the remaining nine vehicles are in advanced stages of production.
Prior to delivery, the coach successfully passed a 9,300 mile (15,000 km) durability test – the equivalent of driving new York To Miami Seven times. The initial coaches are designed to meet Australian standards, which include a right-hand drive configuration and a design temperature of 55 Â° C. Hyzon plans to offer similar coaches to customers around the world from 2022.
Hyzon considers the commercial coach market ready for the adoption of hydrogen: predictable routes lend themselves to a few heavily used refueling stations. Round-the-clock duty cycles require the rapid refueling provided by fuel cell electric coaches, with refueling times similar to those of the traditional diesel-powered coaches they typically replace.
Coaches, which differ from city buses primarily in their raised floors and modes of use, are mainly deployed on regional or inter-city routes, for corporate transport as well as longer public and private transport routes. Given the widespread applications, Hyzon continues to innovate with the short-term goal of developing a coach with a range of 500 miles (800 km).
Since its delivery, the coach has generated great interest from local bus operators, officials from various ministries, mining companies and tourism operators. With coach applications generally being more difficult than city bus operations for fuel cell electric buses, the possibilities for mass transit are also clear to all, as transport agencies around Australia examine their options for decarbonizing bus operations.
The most populous state of New South Wales has already declared its intention to operate its entire fleet of more than 8,000 zero emission buses by 2030, which represents a huge opportunity for fuel cell electric buses.
While the initial vehicles from Hyzon Australia will be imported from factories internationally, Hyzon plans to locate production of key platforms in Australia from 2022.
Based at Rochester, New York, with American operations in the Chicago and Detroit zones, and international operations in the Netherlands, Singapore, Australia, Germany, and China, Hyzon is a leader in fuel cell electric mobility with an exclusive focus on the commercial vehicle market and a short-term focus on return-to-base (captive fleet) operations. Using its proven and proprietary hydrogen fuel cell technology, Hyzon aims to provide zero emission heavy duty trucks and buses to customers of North America, Europe and around the world to mitigate emissions from diesel transport, which is one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions in the world. The Company contributes to the growing adoption of fuel cell electric vehicles through its demonstrated technological advantage, advanced fuel cell performance and history of rapid innovation.
