Electra presents the first refrigerated hydrogen fuel cell battery vehicles

Electra Commercial Vehicles is presenting a world-first in hydrogen with their refrigerated hydrogen Fuel Cell Battery electric Vehicle (FCBeV). The FCBevs have been launched in Stockton on Tees. A major supermarket will trial the truck over the next few months as part of the Tees Valley Hydrogen Vehicle Project.   Electra Chairman Sid Sadique commented: 'We have deliberately designed the truck with an over-specified battery capacity.  ‘The vehicle will be on trial and collecting data, so we required contingency in its ability to return to base. We are excited to venture into this trial to demonstrate once again that Electra is leading on the road to genuine zero-emission vehicle solutions.   'The vehicle on trial is a fully integrated zero-emission vehicle, and the Electra battery even powers the Carrier Transicold Truck Trailer Refrigeration unit. This vehicle configuration is also available from Electra with a Hydrogen Fuel cell acting as a range extender, as shown in Teesside last month,' commented Sid.
