Hydrogen Motor

Volkswagen Tiguan HyMotion

Volkswagen Tiguan HyMotion (2008)

How are driven cars of the future? This question is currently engineers break all automobile companies the head. As a possible alternative is the drive with hydrogen considered. VW also conducting research into this technology and, as result of the test vehicle Tiguan HyMotion.
One of the biggest problems of fuel cell technology is one of the low range. Of particular importance is it if only because it depends on how tight the infrastructure in terms of hydrogen filling stations to be the case. The VW Tiguan HyMotion with a pressure of 700 bar fueling. With the technique used in previous testing model used Touran HyMotion were only 350 bar. As a result combines the clean Tiguan 3.2 kilograms of hydrogen, a range of up to 250 km allow.

Under the Brass of the compact SUVs provides an 80-kilowatt fuel cell provided the energy for the 100 strong kilowatt electric motor. For power peaks may consist of an additional backup battery power for the electric unit could be provided.
To use the Tiguan HyMotion under the "Clean Energy Partnership", shortly CEP. Es handelt sich dabei um einen internationalen Zusammenschluss der Unternehmen BMW, Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe, Daimler, Ford, GM/Opel, Hamburger Hochbahn AG, Linde, ShellHydrogen, StatoilHydro, Total, Vattenfall Europe und VW. It is an international merger of the companies as BMW, Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe, Daimler, Ford, GM / Opel, Hamburger Hochbahn AG, Linde, Shell Hydrogen, Hydro, Statoil, Total, Vattenfall Europe and VW. The aim of the three phases-ranging project, which takes place in Berlin, the technological development of hydrogen for transport and testing to everyday practicality and system capacity.

For the May 2008 began Phase II by the end of 2010 is a technical update of vehicles and infrastructure, and for testing the technology under everyday conditions. At the end of 2016 to phase III is the market preparation of hydrogen technology
