Citroën har introduced its new ë-Jumpy Hydrogen – a van powered by hydrogen fuel cells, which among other things offers more than a 400 km long distance on one tank a refueling time of less than three minutes.
Citroën ë-Jumpy Hydrogen is the company’s first hydrogen-powered van which still manages to maintain its volume and load capacity. A 45 kW fuel cell produces electricity by consuming hydrogen stored in a three-cylinder tank, as well as a 10.5 kWh battery that acts as a 50 km reserve and automatically takes over when the hydrogen tank is empty.
Jumpy, which will be produces at the SevelNord plant, will be transformed into the Stellantis Group’s research and development center for hydrogen fuel cells in Russelsheim, Germany, where the hydrogen car is expected to be on the road by the end of 2021.
Anne-Lise Richard, Head of Low Emission Vehicles at Stellantis Business Unit, says:
“Citroën started a wide offensive in the field of Light Commercial Vehicles, proposing a full electrified range in 2021 on the European market, which is up to 26% compared to 2020. But Citroën doesn’t stop there. Faithful to its will to be inspired by professionals and their usages, its full electric battery van offer is joined by the hydrogen version of Citroën ë-Jumpy. This new technology will suit customers who regularly drive long distance or need faster recharging. Citroën thus proposes to professionals a varied electric LCV offer that allows them to ensure their activity in a sustainable way, in line with their usages and also with environmental issues and the growth of urban access limitations.”
