Hydrogen fuel cell doubles range of Renault Kangoo ZE

Renault Kangoo ZE, Renault, plug-in vans.

Arcola Energy has sold or leased 32 Renault Kangoo ZE-H2 electric vans - with fuel cell range extender produced by Symbio FCell, to UK customers.

The vehicles boast a range of 250 miles – twice the previous range of comparable electric vehicles. 

In partnership with ITM Power, the energy storage and clean fuel company, Arcola Energy deliver an integrated package of on-site fuel and after-sales support for UK commercial fleets.

This provides fleet customers with a one-stop solution for vehicle preparation, registration, insurance, site approvals and staff training. This is in addition to maintenance and engineering support and training and education services, allowing fleet managers to fully realise the benefits of these vehicles.

“One of the issues facing transport managers seeking a truly zero-carbon solution for their vehicle fleets has been the restricted range of battery-only electric vehicles. The solution - now available in the UK exclusively from Arcola Energy, means that fleets can operate effectively either from a local base which we can provide with our partners, or via the network of hydrogen refuelling stations which has been established across the country over the past few years and which continues to grow. The hydrogen transport revolution is taking-off,” said Dr Ben Todd, Arcola Energy’s managing director.

    Much needed to overcome range anxiety and to contribute to better air quality for customers and the general public.
