HYVIA Renault Master Chassis Cab

HYVIA has revealed two hydrogen-fuelled prototype vehicles based on the Renault Master.

It follows the unveiling of the Renault Master Van H2-Tech, last month.

The new vehicles are showcased in chassis cab and minibus guise.

All three hydrogen-powered Renault Master variants are expected to go on sale in 2022.

The Master Chassis Cab H2-Tech is equipped with a 30kW fuel cell, 33kWh battery and two tanks containing 3kg of hydrogen. It has a range of 155 miles.

It offers a wide range of tailor-made conversion options. The first to be released is a box van. Which has 19 cubic metres of cargo space volume and up to 1,000Kg in payload.

The Master City Bus H2-Tech uses the same 30kW fuel cell and 33kWh battery, but comes with a larger tank capacity of 4.5Kg.

This enables a range of around 186 miles, while carrying up to 15 passengers. It is also capable of being wheelchair accessible.

David Holserbach, HYVIA CEO, said: “HYVIA is moving fast. After less than six months of existence, we unveiled three Hydrogen Light Commercial Vehicles: a Van, a Chassis Cab and a City Bus. To meet different usages, for professional fleets or territories. We also revealed our Hydrogen Refuelling Station, to offer customer refuelling options where hydrogen infrastructure is still in development. HYVIA is about concrete solutions to be on track to meet the challenges of green hydrogen mobility and decarbonisation of transport.”

In 2022, HYVIA plans to deploy its full hydrogen ecosystem of hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles, as well as its refuelling stations.
