Test-drive events for the Renault Master Van H2-TECH, a green hydrogen-powered large commercial van, are scheduled in Spain May 30-June 1, announced HYVIA, a partnership of automaker the Renault Group and hydrogen and fuel cell solutions provider Plug.
Termed the “hydrogen van for professionals” by HYVIA, the Renault Master Van H2-Tech is powered by Plug’s 30 kW ProGen fuel cell, with a 33 kWh battery and four tanks containing a total of 6.4 kg of hydrogen.
The zero-emissions van features an optimal refueling time of five minutes, more than 400 km of driving range and a loading volume of 12 cubic meters.
“Spain is a strategic country for Plug with a great potential for hydrogen. This is why we have chosen Barcelona, Madrid and Zaragoza to present the van to sustainably conscious customers,” said José Luis Crespo, Plug general manager, applications and global key accounts.
The test drive presentations, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., will be held:
- Barcelona, May 30, at Mercabarna
