The pleasures of driving with powerful acceleration – combined with low emissions and an unrestricted range. When the fuel runs out, a three-minute refuelling stop puts you back on the road. And all that comes out of your exhaust pipe is a few drops of water. The hydrogen car is a genuine all-rounder, as uncomplicated in everyday use as today's petrol and diesel vehicles. Hydrogen technology is also suitable for heavy vehicles travelling longer distances. We’re going places with hydrogen!


Hydrogen-powered cars and buses use a new propulsion technology – the fuel cell. This causes the energy stored in the hydrogen to be released as electricity. So a fuel cell vehicle is also an electric car without harmful emissions: only steam is released during its operation.

The fuel cell is a very efficient drive train with a system efficiency of up to 65 percent, as compared to 25-35 percent in petrol engines. As a result, despite the energy required to produce hydrogen, the overall efficiency from fuel production to the tank (well-to-wheel) in a fuel cell vehicle is already higher than that of a conventional passenger car.

The systems are already powerful and capable of ranges of up to 700 km. Now the task at hand is to significantly reduce production costs in order to realise market entry.


The Clean Energy Partnership is one of the most important international projects to test hydrogen as a fuel. It revolves around the development of technical standards – from production to swift, safe fuelling to the operation of hydrogen-powered vehicles.
