Renault Hydrogen Van

Renault is coming to the Netherlands with a hydrogen-powered delivery van.

By: Romy de Weert
The French car manufacturer Renault is coming to the Netherlands this summer with a hydrogen-powered delivery van. The Renault Hyvia Master is now only available in France. The first orders for the hydrogen vans can be placed in our country in May.
Renault hydrogen-powered vans are currently only for sale in France. This summer, the car manufacturer will come to the Netherlands with the hydrogen van.

Hydrogen filling stations
This week Renault is taking a test drive with the Hyvia Master along the Dutch hydrogen filling stations. Just like the hydrogen passenger cars, the delivery van fills up below 700 bar. The tank can hold a maximum of 6 kilograms of hydrogen and is located in the roof.

The fuel cell, which converts the hydrogen into electricity, provides a range of about 300 kilometers. In addition, the van also has a small battery on board. It can cover another 80 to 100 kilometers.

Serious move
For the time being, the hydrogen van is being offered at four car dealers in the Netherlands. What they are is not yet known. Hydrogen magazine writes that the bus will cost 134,000 euros. The electric version is 70,000 euros.

According to Renault, the step to hydrogen is a serious and not a temporary phenomenon. It is not yet known whether and when the hydrogen vans from the French car manufacturer will also be sold in other European countries.
