The new fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) is based on the existing battery electric Vivaro-e. The plug-in fuel cell concept of the Vivaro-e HYDROGEN enables the integration of the whole fuel cell system with the existing traction motor under the bonnet of the production vehicle.
Thanks to the smart packaging, the battery electric version becomes a fuel cell electric LCV without any modifications to the body (available in standard 4.95m and long 5.30m wheelbase) and with no impact on the 5.3m3 to 6.1m3 of cargo space, while the payload increases to 1,100kg.
The New Vivaro-e HYDROGEN delivers range autonomy of 249 miles. This comprises of 218 miles for the 4.4kg hydrogen which can be refilled in 3 minutes, and a further 31 miles from the 10.5kWh battery. The Hydrogen Fuel tanks are located under the floor, and the battery is located under the front seats.
Available in LHD markets from the end of 2021 and the UK in RHD from 2023.
