The technology should be ready for series production in three to four years. The objective was to develop a highly efficient, cost-optimised and CO₂ free drive concept. The result is a hydrogen-and battery-powered vehicle. In the future, the technology should not necessarily be applied for passenger cars but should be used in industry, according to AVL Managing Director Helmut List. "This means hydrogen will not be for all traffic but for important parts of the transport sector, especially for heavier vehicles."

Longer range, lower costs
The project has demonstrated that, on balance, this type of drive system can be operated at lower costs when compared only to battery-powered vehicles. Moreover, the system offers shorter refuelling times and a longer range. The project vehicle specifies a range of more than 500 kilometres, with a hydrogen refuelling time of three minutes.
