New Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid Buses

Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid

Germany’s Daimler in 2009 was held on Monday in Vienna, Austria “World Congress and Mobility & City Transport Exhibition” (2009 years Sunday June 7-11), Mercedes-Benz’s fuel cell hybrid bus “Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid “to announce.

The company has a 1997 bus test vehicle equipped with a fuel cell system in the world’s first “NEBUS” it said. The Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid development is an extension of the fuel cell system with a “Fuel Cell Citaro” and “Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid” system, incorporating the elements of the hybrid-diesel technology. Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid is equipped with a motor axle hub, Li-ion secondary battery, and share the power supply system for electric components. In addition, driven by precise control of hybrid systems, that reduces fuel consumption compared to conventional fuel cell bus.

The company soon will begin testing as a normal bus operation in several cities in Europe. This experiment, the years 2003-2006 in EU fuel cell bus trials conducted by “CUTE (Clean Urban Transport for Europe)” will get along. Since 2003, a total of 36 Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses equipped with fuel cell drives have performed outstandingly at 12 public transport agencies on three continents as part of the CUTE test, its HyFLEET:CUTE followup project, and other related testing programs. The buses were driven a combined total of more than two million kilometers in a total of approximately 135,000 hours of operation. Their availability between 90 and 95 percent impressively demonstrated the environmentally friendly fuel-cell drive’s suitability for everyday use in urban regular-service buses

Magna is presenting Mila ev at at the Geneva Motor Show 2009

The outstanding element and centerpiece of the mila ev is its fully integratedelectric vehicle platform which can be used by every OEM to realize their ownproduct, drive and design strategies in the shortest of time.

Concept mila ev is a 5-doors vehicle with a length of 4 m and a wheelbase of 2.5 m. It loads an electric motor of 67 hp, powered by a lithium-ion battery developed by Magna Steyr. At an average charging time of 2.5 hours, ranges of up to 150 km can be achieved.The curved lines of the body to provide an elegant and futuristic aesthetic.

The novel platform on which the mila ev is based is a completely developed conceptwhich can be used for production-vehicle development immediately and thus forseries production in the shortest of time as a genuine electric vehicle or, thanks tothe intelligent design, with natural gas, fuel cells or hybrid drive.

First hydrogen fuel cell tractor in Italy

What fuel will power agricultural equipment in the future? Except oil in addition to a lot of ways to try, one of which is the crop, we can directly in the car collection, and finally get them to as a fuel. Ethanol and bio-diesel in these options are the most widely used, but some people want to try hydrogen.

Holland NH2

Recently named a New Holland NH2, and are known as the world’s first hydrogen-powered hard drive, it just to the identity concept car debut in Italy. This zero-emission fuel cell from cultivators to gain power then passed to a 106hp electric horse to four-wheel-drive, but still has some hydrogen storage and high cost of inter-title, it did not intend to New Holland at 2013 years ago, her volume production.

Mini fuel cell from Alreda

The ideas for affordable fuel cells are long in the drawer. For a small company from Switzerland that is primarily for the military operates. And in Geneva is in Hall 3.

Cheap plastic pots, a pathetic fountain, a red trash can on a green carpet. That’s what the Green Pavilion of Geneva. That’s what the Green Pavilion of Geneva. Where’s flawless prototype park should, just for a handful of small-town Mörchen, which look more like lawn mowers than CityCruiser. Where’s flawless prototype park should, just for a handful of small-town Mörchen, which look more like lawn MOWERS than CityCruiser. Actually, one would immediately go to the Greens, cucumbers, were it not for a small, inconspicuous fair sensation: the world premiere in the trunk.

Mini fuel cell from Alreda

Alreda it – insure the Swiss – the first time managed to the outrageously expensive platinum, which is used for fuel cells, in a very thin layer of single atoms on the fuel cell wall to steam. This may fuel the future, according inches Alreda be offered as cheaply as a power generator for camping. For comparison, a conventional fuel cell costs 3000 Euro/kW, a power unit of Honda 500 Euro/kW, the super cell of Alreda just 400 to 600 euros/kW. And something is uncharitable in the trunk of a white truck of electric Piaggo. It is the small two to three kilowatts large cell as Range Extender (range extension) for the electric motor and not as a pure fuel cell propulsion. Even a super idea of the Opel, Karma & Co, a disc can be cut off. The prototype of the fuel cell, just as big as a plate Ritter Sport chocolate, prefers the state employees from a desk drawer out. As we would have guessed it: The ideas for affordable fuel cells are long in the drawer.

FC EXPO 2009: 5th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo

Exhibitions organized by hydrogen fuel cells and batteries lead Japan Exhibition “FC EXPO 2009: 5th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo”, in Ariake, Tokyo, “Tokyo Big Sight” by February 25 to 27 to be held that. Car Watch, and the introduction of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technology has been exhibited at the exhibition.

Project implemented by the Ministry of Economy “JHFC (Japan Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Demonstration Project: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Demonstration Project)” in the booth, and on empirical research and empirical studies of the hydrogen station and fuel cell vehicles have the same project implementation of the exhibition. Honda “FCX CLARITY” and Toyota “FCHV-adv”, General Motors Asia Pacific Japan “Equinox Chevrolet Fuel Cell” is displayed, such as fuel cell vehicles.

In addition, Nissan’s “X-TRAIL FCV” and newly developed fuel cell stack is mounted on, techno-hydrogen dispenser Tokico Ltd., Central District and the metropolitan area, and the introduction of hydrogen stations were established in the region that. The FCHV-adv at Tokyo Big Sight and the X-TRAIL FCV, the Honda “FCX”, Japan’s Mercedes-Benz “F-Cell” and the implementation of fuel cell vehicles and test drive. Fuel cell buses developed by Hino Motors and Toyota “FCHV-BUS” and ride is located near the Place “JHFC Ariake hydrogen station,” it also can visit and tour.

By the Ministry of Science and Technology Pavilion at the Swiss Embassy, Switzerland, fuel cell vehicles “PAC-Car II” are on display. Exhibition abroad that the first time.

PAC-Car II, fuel cell car project students from the Technical University of Zurich Switzerland. Held in 2005, “Shell Eco-Marathon”, the equivalent petrol 5385km/L to achieve fuel efficiency, combustion efficiency, set a world record. This record also does not say that now breached.

1L fuel cartridge 2 is labeled about 11 hydrogen-compressed using a 2g with a crowbar, which is equivalent to gasoline 8ml. 12V, maximum output of 900W and a fuel cell system with power supply, a maximum speed of 32km/h. Rear-wheel drive is powered by two DC motors, low-power when the power from the motors can be divided into one or both. The body is carbon fiber material used, shape of body weight is 10kg, and 29kg in total is. In addition, he said that improving the fuel efficiency of the wheel and use a fiber optic communication in the electronic control. PAC-Car II PAC-Car II PAC-Car II PAC-Car II

Horizon Fuel Cell Japan, sales based assisted bicycle “HMX” was exhibited. Driven by hydrogen, with a filling of times they can travel 300km and speed of road in the 25Km/h. Reference price is 4,600 dollars. For these products, but always clinging to the question of how to supply the fuel, so I’m thinking about developing a system that can be filled with hydrogen at home. If hydrogen can be generated by electrolysis of water.
