NEW DEFENDER HYDROGEN CONCEPT VEHICLE TARGETS ZERO EMISSIONS
FCEVs generate electricity to power an electric motor and provide high energy density and rapid refueling, with minimal loss of range in low temperatures. This makes the technology ideal for larger, longer-range vehicles, or those operated in either hot or cold environments. Globally the number of FCEVs has nearly doubled since 2018, with hydrogen refueling stations increasing more than 20%. By 2030, it is forecast that there could be more than 10 million hydrogen-powered FCEVs with 10,000 refueling stations around the world.
OPTIMISING PERFORMANCE AND CAPABILITY
Ralph Clague, Head of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells for Jaguar Land Rover, said, “We know hydrogen has a role to play in the future powertrain mix across the whole transport industry...it offers another zero tailpipe emission solution for the specific capabilities and requirements of Jaguar Land Rover’s world class line-up of vehicles. The work done alongside our partners in Project Zeus will help us on our journey to become a net zero carbon business by 2039.”
